NASA’s Mars Helicopter Ingenuity Ready for Historic First Flight Sunday

Humanity’s first helicopter on Mars has been cleared for a historic liftoff.

The device will soar into the skies over Jezero Crater on Sunday (April 11) in a 40-second flight, about four times as long as the Wright brothers’ first flight on Earth more than 117 years ago. The first data, successful or not, should return to Earth on Monday (April 12) around 3:30 am EDT (0830 GMT).
