Amazing Video Shows Mars Helicopter Cruising Above Martian Surface
NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter successfully set a new speed record over the weekend during its third powered flight on the surface of the Red Planet. It flew some 164 feet at an altitude of 16 feet, reaching a top speed of 6.6 feet per second. The entire flight lasted about 80 seconds. It may have been the third try, but it's the first time we've seen Ingenuity really stretch its capabilities -- especially when it comes to covering distance on the vast, deserted landscape.
