NASA Team Celebrate Mars Helicopter's Fourth Flight

NASA said its Ingenuity Mars Helicopter successfully completed its fourth flight on April 30.

In a statement, Nasa said the helicopter took off and climbed to an altitude of 16 feet (5 meters) before flying south approximately 436 feet (133 meters) and then back, for an 872-foot (266-meter) round trip.

NASA said Ingenuity was in the air for a total of 117 seconds.

“We also managed to capture lots of images during the flight with the color camera and with Ingenuity’s black-and-white navigation camera, which tracks surface features as it flies,” the statement added. Credit: NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory via Storyful
