NASA's Ingenuity Mars helicopter lifts off for historic first flight Updated: 2021-04-19 15:08:33 KST

NASA launched its mini helicopter "Ingenuity" above the surface of Mars for an attempt at the world's first powered, controlled flight on another planet.
The results of that mission will be announced, but if all went to plan, the one.eight kilogram aircraft should have risen about three meters, hovered for around thirty seconds and rotated before landing on all four legs.
Ingenuity will undertake additional, longer flights in the weeks ahead.
NASA is likening it to the Wright Brothers' flight in nineteen-oh-three, marking the occasion by attaching a tiny swath of wing fabric from the Wright Brothers' aircraft under Ingenuity’s solar panel.
