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.

A new Utah law will require biological fathers pay half of a woman’s out-of-pocket pregnancy costs
SALT LAKE CITY -- Biological fathers in Utah will be legally required to pay half of a woman’s out-of-pocket pregnancy costs under a new law unique to the state that critics say doesn’t do enough to adequately address maternal health care needs.

But some critics argue the new legislation won’t help women who are most vulnerable and could make abusive situations even more dangerous for pregnant women.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first new medication to treat ADHD in children in over a decade last week.
According to the AP, Qelbree, unlike other ADHD drugs, is not a stimulant.

Qelbree, also known as viloxazine, comes with a warning that it may cause suicidal thoughts and behavior, which was observed in less than 1 percent of volunteers in studies.
The drug's developer, Supernus Pharmaceuticals of Rockville, Md., has not disclosed what the price of Qelbree will be, though it will likely be more expensive than generic ADHD medications.
