Mars Helicopter Sets New Record!

 

NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter has been buzzing around Mars since April 2021, and it’s not slowing down. In a recent update, NASA announced that Ingenuity has achieved an incredible speed record.

 

 Here’s the scoop: Ingenuity reached a mind-blowing speed of 22.4 miles per second on its 62nd flight over the red planet!  This remarkable drone-like helicopter has consistently broken records, and this time, it surpassed its previous speed record of 17.9 mph.

 

 The mission’s goal is to hunt for traces of ancient life with Ingenuity’s data, advancing our understanding of Mars. It’s also helping NASA prepare for the future, paving the way for the first human mission to Mars in 2030.
