New High-Res Video Shows Ingenuity Making Its Historic Flight on Mars

NASA’s curiosity is about a 1.8-kilogram (4 pounds) robotic helicopter and on April 19, it became the first human vehicle to achieve a non-Earth-powered aircraft.

The first data presented showed that the small helicopter has hovered about three meters (ten feet) from the ground and that the first image and video of the event followed the success of Ingenuity’s first aircraft. NASA has now released an even higher resolution video of the entire event using sincerity cameras, where it is possible to get a touch of skill in spin-up, lift-off, flight, and then in incredible detail, a truly remarkable and historic achievement for the team.

Ingenuity project manager MiMi Aung, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a statement, “We’ve been thinking for a long time about our Wright brothers being on Mars right now and it here.” “We’ll take a moment to celebrate our success and then get a clue from Orville and Wilbur about what else to do. History shows that they are back at work – to learn as much as they can about their new aircraft – and so will we.” The team is still receiving and analyzing the data and will report it to subsequent flights that may take advantage. Four more expected to display this incredible technology.

At least a few more days not expected for the next test, and if successful, the team will study how to make the flight of the engine a little more “bold” in length, format and aerial speed.
