Washington: US space agency NASA made history on Monday. Ingenuity helicopter took off for the first time on Mars. The helicopter was sent to Mars with a perseverance rover.

NASA broadcast this historic moment live. According to NASA, the helicopter took off from a temporary helipad built in the Jezero Crater on Mars. This was

the first time that a helicopter had taken off on a planet other than Earth. The mission was being controlled by a California-based Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The 1.8 kg helicopter Ingenuity helicopter is 1.8 kg. It took off with four carbon-fiber blades. The blades are capable of rotating at the rate of 2400 rounds per minute. Not only that, this speed is about 8 times more than the speed of the blades of helicopters on earth. The reason behind speeding up the blade is that the atmosphere in Mars is 100 times thinner than the earth.

The helicopter, which flew 10 feet high, managed to fly to a height of about 10 feet Ingenuity helicopter. Then it came down. The helicopter will schedule four such flights in the next four to 30 days. However, every time efforts will be made to reach higher altitudes and distances.
