Mars helicopter Ingenuity aborted latest flight attempt because of anomaly

NASA’s Mars helicopter Ingenuity didn’t get off the ground as planned earlier this month.

Ingenuity was scheduled to make its 14th Red Planet sortie on Sept. 18, a relatively short and simple hop that would have demonstrated the little chopper’s ability to fly with slightly higher rotor speeds — 2,700 revolutions per minute (RPM) rather than the usual 2,537 RPM.
