Ingenuity helicopter completes longest flight on Mars

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory announced the successful completion of another Ingenuity helicopter flight to Mars, which became the ninth in a row.

This flight became the longest of all previously performed, as announced on the official page of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the social network Twitter.

The helicopter completed its ninth and most difficult flight, moving for 166.4 seconds at a speed of 5 meters per second.

During the flight, the helicopter took another picture, which shows Ingenuity’s shadow cast on the surface of Mars.

A member of the development team said a month ago that the Ingenuity helicopter’s drive system is showing no signs of wear yet.
