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

On Mon, 19 Apr 2021 09:47:37 -0700 (PDT), "

"A small helicopter opened a new chapter of space exploration this morning
when it lifted off the surface of Mars, marking humankindís 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."



LOL, they spent billions to make it do three flights of fancy on Mars,
I say three, because at the fourth it broke :-)))

Tell me now which is the whack science.....

and LOL again .
