NASA’s Ingenuity Helicopter made a successful flight to Mars a distance of 164 feet.
NASA told about the flight that if the ingenuity flies too fast, the flight algorithm cannot track the characteristics of the surface. Ingenuity flights are challenging due to varying conditions from Earth. The biggest obstacle in this is the atmosphere of Mars. Which is much thinner than our density here. NASA said that they are now preparing for the fourth flight. In every flight, an attempt will be made to set a higher altitude and distance. Ingenuity took its first flight on 19 April. During this time he was blown to a height of 10 feet from the ground.

Indian student gave name to IngenuityThe need for rotorcraft on Mars is because the unseen-unknown surface there is extremely rugged. Orbiters circling in Mars orbit can see clearly only from a height to a limit. At the same time, it is not possible for the rover to go to every corner of the surface. In such a situation, a rotorcraft is needed that can fly to difficult places and take high-definition pictures. The 2 kg Ingenuity was named by India’s student Vanija Rupani through a competition.
