NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter completed its first flight on Mars successfully. This was the first powered flight on another planet in history.

The Ingenuity mission was to rise to about 3m, hover for roughly 30 seconds, swivel and then land. Further four flights will be attempted over the coming days, each one taking the helicopter further afield.
