NASA set to fly mini helicopter on Mars

NASA’s Perseverance rover on Mars is set to deploy a mini helicopter named Ingenuity that will fly and explore the Red Planet.

NASA expects the first test flight of the four-pound, four-blade rotorcraft to come “no earlier than the first week of April”.

The Ingenuity Mars Helicopter is the first aircraft sent to another planet to attempt powered, controlled flight.
