If you haven’t been following all the Mars news lately there is some pretty cool stuff happening. First of all… we got there. Which is already pretty amazing.
Now, NASA’s tiny helicopter made a successful first flight on Mars Monday morning. It didn’t break any speed records or anything but it did hover about 10 feet off the ground for 39 seconds. Which is pretty impressive for being 180 million miles away. It’s the first powered, controlled flight we have ever done on another planet.
We’ll be booking our MARS summer vacations before we know it.
It happened. Today our #MarsHelicopter proved that powered, controlled flight from the surface of another planet is possible. It takes a little ingenuity, perseverance, and spirit to make that opportunity a reality: https://t.co/oT3rrBm6wj pic.twitter.com/u63GKshp0G
