NASA to attempt first Mars helicopter flight Monday morning

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter could take flight for the first time on Monday, April 19.

The flight will be autonomous and was scheduled to begin around 3:30 a.m. Information from the flight will return to earth a few hours after it is completed.

A livestream of the flight information will begin at 6:15 a.m. CLICK HERE to watch.

If you have any questions for NASA officials during the livestream, you can use the hashtag #MarsHelicopter on social media.

The helicopter was scheduled to take its first flight on April 11, but engineers found a command sequence issue that needed to be fixed.

The Perseverance rover will take photos of the event and assist in collecting environmental data. It will also be what mission controllers use to communicate with the helicopter.
