    With the simple command of “fly”, NASA has made history by successfully flying its mini-helicopter Ingenuity off the surface of Mars. It’s the first powered, controlled flight by an aircraft on a planet other than Earth. The solar-powered mini-chopper touched down in February, carried to the red planet strapped to NASA’s Mars rover Perseverance. Speaking to The World, astrophysicist Dr Clare Kenyon has called it “an enormous first of engineering technology”.
