Default NASA Mars helicopter makes history as first vehicle to fly on another planet

"A small helicopter opened a new chapter of space exploration this morning
when it lifted off the surface of Mars, marking humankind’s first powered flight
on another planet. The 19-inch-tall chopper called Ingenuity kicked up rusty red
dust as it hovered about 10 feet off the ground, turned slightly, and slowly
touched back down. The flight lasted only about 40 seconds, but it represents
one of history's most audacious engineering feats."

There is a small patch of cloth from the 1903 Wright Flyer attached to
the NASA Ingenuity helicopter.

In my opinion, all this comparing Ingenuity to the Wright Flyer is over
blowing it. Now I think that Ingenuity is very cool. But building a tiny
helicopter capable of flying on Mars is not a big engineering feat.
Bringing the helicopter to Mars is the real challenge, but the ability
to bring stuff on Mars has been demonstrated decades ago.

Once again, I think that Ingenuity is very cool and give a kudos to NASA
for pulling it off. But the Wright Flyer was a major milestone,
Ingenuity is a really cool toy.

What I am more curious about is what would a real plane equivalent to
say the Dash-8 be like on Mars. Wingspan, (and thus structures) and
engines/propellors or ducted fans. (assuming electric engine here since
jet or internal combustion would require liquid O2 as well as fuel).


Aircraft on Mars would be extremely difficult, but possible.

Has NASA released specs on how far from Perseverance the helicopter can
go to remain in radio contact?


I don't know. You could try Google.

Or does the chopper talk to Earth on its
own and can have totally unrelated mission and go totally different places?


Ingenuity does not talk directly to Earth. It talks to Perseverance
rover which in turn talks to craft currently in orbit around Mars. This
information is on their respective Wikipedia pages (grep for
communication).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ingenuity_(helicopter)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseverance_(rover)

And you should be able to find that information on the JPL site, as
well.


play and play with mini-helicopters :-) you are reducing astronautics to a park for idiots
