NASA said on April 25 that this helicopter had moved 50 meters with a maximum speed of 2 m / sec during this “journey” flight.

This is Ingenuity’s third flight since this particular helicopter made its historic first flight on the Red Planet earlier this month.

Ingenuity reached Mars in February aboard the Perseverance expedition ship after a seven-month journey from Earth.

Ingenuity’s maiden flight on Mars on April 19 was the first of an energy-powered plane on another planet.

NASA says the images captured by Ingenuity during the flight’s 80 seconds will be returned to Earth in the coming days.

The US Space Agency also said the helicopter would soon make its fourth flight on Mars.

Flight operations on Mars are difficult due to special conditions on the planet, such as the atmosphere is only 1% dense on Earth.

The Ingenuity experiment will be over in a month for the Perseverance expedition to return to its primary mission of looking for signs of microbial life on Mars.

Last week, NASA said it made its first ever mission to Mars after converting carbon dioxide from Mars’ atmosphere into pure, breathable oxygen.
