Mars Helicopter Glitch

Ingenuity survived its first near-death experience on Mars

May 29th, 2021

Ingenuity is probably the world’s favorite helicopter — if ever there was one. It’s the first human-made vehicle that flew on Mars, not counting the landers that brought rovers along with the drone to the red planet. Ingenuity has taken off and landed a few times already, and those missions were accomplished without too many …

The first sounds of the Mars helicopter have made it to Earth

May 10th, 2021

We’ve seen NASA’s Mars helicopter Ingenuity sitting on the Red Planet’s surface. We’ve seen it fly and hover. We’ve even seen it kick up dust and travel horizontally in a demonstration of its usefulness. The only thing we haven’t done is hear what the helicopter sounds like on Mars. Now, thanks to NASA’s Perseverance rover …

NASA nails fifth Mars helicopter flight

May 10th, 2021

NASA has had a great deal of success with its Mars helicopter Ingenuity. The aircraft took the long trip from Earth to the Red Planet while strapped to the belly of the Perseverance rover, and once it was dropped off at its first Mars “airstrip” it didn’t take long for the helicopter to begin its …

This is the best video of NASA’s Mars helicopter yet

April 27th, 2021

The Mars Ingenuity helicopter has already accomplished a lot during its brief time on the Red Planet. It became the first manmade aircraft to sustain powered flight on another planet as well as the first aircraft to travel any distance on a world other than Earth. NASA has a very limited amount of time with …

NASA’s Mars helicopter just took an extremely long flight

April 26th, 2021

NASA is moving fast with its Ingenuity helicopter trials on Mars. In its first flight, the tiny aircraft took off, hovered, and landed in place. Its second flight saw it take off, travel a relatively short distance of 16 feet, and then land again. Its third flight, which NASA completed on Sunday, April 25th, was …

NASA’s Mars helicopter took flight and lived to tell the tale

April 19th, 2021

History was made today, though you probably didn’t realize it. After all, it was made on another planet. NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter — a small machine designed to take flight in the Martian atmosphere — did exactly what it was supposed to do and took to the skies for roughly 30 seconds. It reached an altitude …

NASA forced to delay first Mars Helicopter flight

April 12th, 2021

NASA’s Perseverance mission to Mars has been pretty much perfect thus far. The rover and its tiny helicopter companion landed on the Red Planet with ease and after about a month of systems testing and other startup work, both the rover and the Ingenuity helicopter were given clean bills of health. This past weekend, the …

Here’s when you’ll finally be able to see the Mars helicopter fly

April 10th, 2021

It’s now been well over a month since NASA’s Perseverance rover arrived on Mars. Along with it, the Mars Ingenuity helicopter landed safe and sound on the Red Planet, and a significant portion of the rover’s first weeks was dedicated to delivering the helicopter to its test flight location. The helicopter was deployed and has …
