NASA. Ingenuity is already in a position to take flight on Mars

A NASA shared in respective Twitter page a new photograph showing progress in preparations for the first helicopter flight from Mars.

In the photo you can see the small Ingenuity aircraft (only 1.8kg) already in position to take flight. Note that Ingenuity will still have to charge the batteries with solar energy, so the key moment has not yet arrived.

It is believed that the first Ingenuity flight may take place on the 11th of April, with the aircraft rising about three meters for just 30 seconds. THE NASA plans to carry out more ambitious flights over the next few days, with durations that can go up to 90 seconds and altitudes of almost 50 meters.
