The Mars helicopter Ingenuity is about to make history in the skies of another world

NASA is about to make history on the Red Planet with the first controlled, powered flight on another world.

This Sunday (April 11), NASA’s Mars Helicopter Ingenuity is expected to make its first-ever flight on Mars, a historic liftoff for the 4-pound (1.8 kilograms) craft. This flight will come 118 years after the Wright Brothers made their first successful powered flight on Earth and 60 years after the first human spaceflight, which was made by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin April 12, 1961.
