Watch the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter complete the first flight test on Mars live

| |

The NASA’s Mars Helicopter, Ingenuity, is set to make history as it will attempt to complete the first flight test on Mars today. If the test will be successful, it would be the first powered, controlled flight on another planet.

The demonstration should see the Mars-copter – called Ingenuity – rise to about 3m, hover for roughly 30 seconds, swivel and then land.

If the flight works, a further four flights will be attempted over the coming days, each one taking the helicopter further afield.
