    The small helicopter successfully took flight on the red planet on Monday morning, hovering in the air at around 10 feet (three metres), before descending and touching back down on the Martian surface.

    The news was met by cheers and applause at mission control, and pictures from the mission showed the craft hovering.

    MiMi Aung, Ingenuity Mars Helicopter project manager at Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), said: “We can now say that human beings have flown a rotorcraft on another planet.”
