The flight was originally scheduled for April 11, but plans shifted after a command-sequence problem was found when the helicopter went via a system of preflight checks with its software program. The Ingenuity staff acquired knowledge on April sixteen showing that the helicopter efficiently completed its speedy spin check after they had made a tweak to the command sequence. The helicopter team was in mission control at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, early Monday morning to receive and analyze the first knowledge from Ingenuity’s flight attempt. Unlike when the helicopter’s fellow traveler, the Perseverance rover, landed on Mars on February 18, there was a bit of wait to know how the helicopter fared in its try. The Ingenuity helicopter has successfully accomplished its historic flight on Mars and safely landed back on the surface, according to NASA.
