NASA’s Ingenuity Helicopter Achieves Historic Milestone, Completes 50th Flight and Breaks Record for Altitude on Mars

NASA's Mars Helicopter, Ingenuity, has achieved a major milestone, completing its 50th flight and breaking a new record for altitude of 59 feet. This marks the first time a rotorcraft has achieved powered, controlled flight on another planet, and the 50th flight was a repositioning mission to explore the "Fall River Pass" near the planet's Jerezo Crater. Since its first flight on April 19, 2021, Ingenuity has surpassed all expectations, transitioning from a technology demonstration to an aerial scout for the red planet.
