This month NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter will make the first attempt at powered, controlled flight of an aircraft on another planet. The Ingenuity remains attached to the belly of the the Perseverance Rover which touched down on Mars in February.
Currently in transit to its ‘’air field’’ which is a 10m x10m carefully selected area from where it will be deployed, it then has 30 Martian days, or sols equal to 31 earth days to conduct its test flight
Two further phases of this mission are going to be completed by 2031, with the aim being to carefully collect the samples from the surface of Mars that Perseverance will have taken and deliver them to Earth.
International Space Archives (ISA) not only has access to the Mars mission patches but also a selection of photography captured throughout the mission so far.
