How NASA’s Mars helicopter Ingenuity can fly on the Red Planet


Flying on Mars is far from a breeze, but NASA is confident that its little helicopter is up to the challenge.

That 4-lb. (1.8 kilograms) chopper, named Ingenuity, landed with the agency’s Perseverance rover on Feb. 18 and is gearing up to make the first-ever powered, controlled flights on a world beyond Earth. If all goes according to plan, Ingenuity will get its Wright Brothers moment on Sunday (April 11).
