NASA helicopter on Mars in the 10th flight over the Red Planet exceeded 1.6 km

NASA’s “Ingenuity” helicopter on Mars flew its first mile on the Red Planet.

On Saturday (July 24), the small helicopter crossed the 1.6 km mark when it flew over a rocky area called Raised Ridges outside its home in Jezero Crater. This mission was the 10th and largest ever by Ingenuity to arrive on Mars with NASA’s Perseverance rover in February. Ingenuity’s maiden flight took place in April.
