On Monday, a miniature helicopter built by the US Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) successfully performed a takeoff and landing operation on Mars.

And “NASA” published a video showing a state of joy among the team assigned to direct the plane, as everyone shouted and applauded.

The importance of the achievement is highlighted in that it is the first flight of an aircraft powered by a controlled engine to a planet other than Earth, according to “Reuters”.

And the red planet is 173 million miles from the planet, so the scientific achievement in this plane is considered historical.

These historical moments are similar to those that accompanied the Wright brothers’ launch of the first man-made aircraft at the turn of the twentieth century.

Although the brothers’ attempt was modest, as their plane covered only 37 meters in 12 seconds in North Carolina in 1903, it opened the door to the evolution of the world of aviation.

Likewise, the solar-powered NASA Ingenuity helicopter is expected to start modestly.

The weight of the plane does not exceed 1.8 kilograms, and it was planned before the flight to fly at a height of 3 meters from the surface of Mars for 30 seconds and then rotate, before landing on its four legs.
