Helicopter on Mars
Daughter of Dr. Hla Hla Sein (Mathematics)
- The Ingenuity helicopter has successfully completed its historic flight on Mars and safely landed back on the surface, according to NASA.
- The first powered, controlled flight on another planet took place at 3:34 a.m. ET.
- Unlike when the helicopter’s fellow traveler, the Perseverance rover, landed on Mars on February 18, there was a bit of wait to know how the helicopter fared in its attempt.
- The helicopter team was in mission control at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, early Monday morning to receive and analyze the first data from Ingenuity’s flight attempt.
