NASA invites everyone to follow Mars Ingenuity helicopter

Published

on

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) plans on Sunday, April 11, to make the first attempt at a controlled manned flight on another planet using an Ingenuity helicopter. In this regard, NASA invites everyone to witness this historic event.

It will be streamed live on the NASA app and on the agency’s website. In addition, it can be viewed on popular platforms, including YouTube and Facebook.

The first Mars helicopter, Ingenuity, arrived at Jezero Crater on Mars on February 18, attached to the Perseverance rover. The Ingenuity helicopter is scheduled to operate for 31 days. At the same time, the rover will provide support during flights, processing the received images and data about the environment, which will be sent to Earth.

NASA warned that April 11 is the most optimistic date that could change as engineers work on preparation, pre-flight checks and positioning of both Perseverance and Ingenuity.

The Ingenuity helicopter touched the planet’s surface just a couple of days ago.
