NASA planning to fly Ingenuity Helicopter on Mars to prove that powered-flight is possible on a planet other than Earth
Ingenuity's has an antenna, solar panel, landing legs and two rotors which makes deploying it a challenge.
With only a month till liftoff, the team revealed a commemorative plate on the rover – the COVID-19 Perseverance plate – designed in the last few weeks.
The launch window for the mission is between 17 July and 5 August and the mission duration will be around 687 Earth days.
The Mastcam-Z, located on the rover’s head, can zoom into images and will help the mission create 3D imagery more easily.
Alex will visit Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to witness the launch of the rover and will always be associated with this mission.
