Nasa flies small helicopter on Mars!

Apr 20, 2021 09:09 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The American space agency, Nasa, has successfully flown a small helicopter on Mars.

The drone, called Ingenuity, flew for less than a minute, but Nasa is celebrating as it was the first powered, controlled flight by an aircraft on another world.

Confirmation came via a satellite at Mars which relayed the chopper's data back to Earth.

The space agency is promising more adventurous flights in the days ahead.
