The experimental Ingenuity vehicle is expected to complete a short but historic up-and-down flight on Monday morning.
Early on Monday, a robotic helicopter that NASA sent to Mars will try to rise a few feet in the air, hover and come back down. With that simple feat, it would become the first machine to fly through the wispy air of the red planet. NASA officials have been likening it to the Wright brothers flight in 1903 at Kitty Hawk, N.C. Never before has something like an airplane or a helicopter taken off on another world.
Exciting stuff here!!!
