First Videos & Images of Mars Helicopter Ingenuity First Flight

1 Просмотры
Here are the first flight video and images captured by both the Mars helicopter and Perseverance Rovers on Mars when the helicopter made its first (and successful) controlled flight on Mars.

The flight took place on April 19, 2021, at 3:34 EDT (12:34 PDT) – 12:33 Local Mean Solar Time (Mars time). It climbed to its prescribed maximum altitude of 10 feet (3 meters) and hovered in a stable position for 30 seconds. Then the helicopter descended, touching back down on the Martian soil.

This flight proved that powered, controlled flight from the surface of another planet is possible.
