NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter Succeeds in Historic First Flight

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter Succeeds in Historic First Flight: Helicopter engine with NASA's Perseverance spacecraft landed on Mars for the first time on the 17th. It was the first time in the history of this world that any kind of flight had taken place on any other planet. NASA compared the event to the first flight in 1905.

The details of the flight were received by NASA two and a half hours after the flight. Other details will come slowly, NASA said. All the programs for helicopter flight are already arranged in it and the helicopter is getting energy through solar panels. The place where the helicopter flew is now renamed Wright Brothers Field by NASA, as it was the first spacecraft to fly to another planet 115 years ago.

This helicopter is not like the gigantic helicopter on our earth. It's supposed to be a children's toy, but NASA has spent a whopping ૫ 25 million on it. The helicopter is 12.5 inches high and weighs 1.5 kilograms. Its success will make it easier for future spacecraft to fly.
