NASA’s Ingenuity copter makes second successful flight on Mars

NASA’s Mars helicopter Ingenuity completed its second test-flight successfully Thursday. This time, the 4-pound copter hovered after reaching altitude of 16 feet (5 meters) and also flew side to side for a distance of 7 feet (2 meters). The flight lasted 54 seconds. Ingenuity made history by becoming the first aircraft to fly on another planet on April 19.

If governments put 1% of the investment into space exploration they put into lying, controlling and stealing from their people, we'd be reading about the first permenantly manned colony on Mars. Nice job NASA, keep it up.

This is the fakest stuff I have ever seen in my entire life. Can no one else realize that a helicopter can’t fly 22 miles above the earths atmosphere? That’s how thin the air is on Mars at ground level. Can no one else see this?
