About the Ingenuity:

  • Ingenuity was on autopilot for its total flight, out of sight, direct management, or contact with the women and men on Earth who had ordered it aloft—as a result of radio alerts take too lengthy to journey between the planets for any human operator to intervene.
  • The mini 4-pound (1.8-kilogram) copter even carried a little bit of wing cloth from the Wright Flyer that made comparable historical past at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903.
