First of all, we’d like to congratulate NASA’s recent Mars Rover, Perseverance, on her new child, Ingenuity. The kid might get made fun of in school, but you’re absolutely glowing, darling. – Perseverance held it’s helicopter winged baby in its belly for weeks before releasing it to the frozen, radiation-saturated hellscape that is Mars. Its mission: to fly 5 separate times for 30 seconds each excursion, taking photos from 10 meters above the Martian surface as it hovers along. It will be the first flight ever achieved on an alien planet, and its success could mean upcoming rovers will be equipped with helicopter wings. Weeeeeeee.
