"Everything is working so well," said Josh Ravich, the head of Ingenuity's mechanical engineering team. "We're doing better on the surface than we had expected."
Making a case for endurance: Beyond coronavirus pandemic, perseverance and repair are at core of human society
Maintenance and repair might look less interesting than attempts at making a difference, but without them, everything around us would collapse.
The $85 million tech demo was supposed to end a few days ago, but NASA extended the mission by at least a month to get more flying time.
Tianwen-1 will use a laser range finder to work out where it is relative to Martian terrain and microwave sensor to determine its speed more accurately.
Balaram had said if the Mars helicopter was successful, it would open up a whole new dimension of exploring Mars.
Perseverance rover sent a video showing the chopper hovering three meters for 10 seconds, then touching back down.
Would we want futuristic Mars settlements to operate like modern-day Earth towns, or could we do better?
Ingenuity will be attempting to fly in an atmosphere that is one percent the density of Earth's, which makes achieving lift harder.
Curiosity drilled a sample of the rock, nicknamed ‘Nontron’ after the Earth village near which Mont Mercou is located in France.
Mohan's team played a key role in the entry, descent and landing (EDL) phase, which according to the NASA website was the shortest and most intense phase of the Mars 2020 mission
The Perseverance rover, about the size of a car, is the largest Mars payload ever — weighing a tonne on Earth.
NASA could be first space agency to fly a helicopter on another planet as Perseverance gets ready to land
NASA describes Ingenuity's mission as a "technology demonstration": a project that seeks to test a new capability together with the astrobiology mission of Perseverance.
Techniques of comparing Mars’ samples with present day Earth can help us find a lot more, the researchers said.
NASA and the ESA should consider moving the next sample-return efforts from 2026 to 2028, due to the technological challenges, the panel said.
Optimism will share space in the Mars Yard with Maggie, the engineering model that stands in for NASA's Curiosity rover.
NASA's Mars Helicopter Ingenuity aboard the Perseverance rover recharges for the first time in space
If Ingenuity manages to withstand the harsh environment on Mars, scientists at JPL will give it a 31 Earth day test flight window.
NASA shares incredible pictures of Mars captured by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter to celebrate its 15th anniversary
The orbiter has managed to capture the multiple spacecrafts - Spirit, Opportunity as well as the Curiosity rover - trekking and exploring Mars.
MOXIE is built to produce oxygen from carbon dioxide in the Martian atmosphere just like a tree does here on Earth.
The black and white image was captured by the spacecraft some 1.2 million kilometres away from Earth, on 27 July.
