NASA delays Mars helicopter Ingenuity’s 1st flight to April 14


NASA has delayed the first flight of its Mars helicopter Ingenuity after the vehicle’s last test ended earlier than planned.

Ingenuity will now remain planted firmly on the Red Planet’s surface until at least Wednesday (April 14), according to a statement from the agency. The delay comes in response to an anomaly during a test that was meant to see the helicopters blades reach flight-like speeds of 2,400 revolutions per minute.
