A dream takes flight! Today, our Ingenuity #MarsHelicopter became the first aircraft in history to make a powered, controlled flight on another planet.
In a video captured by our Perseverance Mars rover, the helicopter is shown hovering above the Red Planet's surface. During this first flight, the helicopter climbed to an altitude of 10 feet (3 meters), hovered, and then touched back down on the surface of Mars.

I was standing on a cliff overlooking the ocean in a lush green field. Suddenly, a helicopter enters my vision. Dangling from the helicopter is a white horse, suspended by rope of some sort. The rope is cut and the horse plummets into the ocean. It disappears beneath the waves and I wake up.

This is the shadow of Ingenuity, the test helicopter carried by NASA's Perseverance Mars Rover, during its first ever powered flight this morning. The helicopter did a quick test hover and landed successfully afterwards.

ICYMI: New sounds from Mars dropped! Turn the volume up to hear our Ingenuity Mars Helicopter flying on the Red Planet.
Captured by our Perseverance Mars Rover, this is the first time a spacecraft on another planet has recorded the sounds of a separate spacecraft. In this audio track, Perseverance used its SuperCam microphone to listen to the Ingenuity helicopter on April 30, 2021 as it flew on Mars for the fourth time.
With Perseverance parked 262 feet (80 meters) from the helicopter鈥檚 takeoff and landing spot, the mission wasn鈥檛 sure if the microphone would pick up any sound of the flight. Even during flight when the helicopter鈥檚 blades are spinning at 2,537 rpm, the sound is greatly muffled by the thin Martian atmosphere. It is further obscured by Martian wind gusts during the initial moments of the flight. Listen closely, though, and the helicopter鈥檚 hum can be heard faintly above the sound of those winds.
