Hello fellow drone pilots and / or space nerds.

NASA launched the Perseverance rover mission to Mars today (30 July 2020).


A unique part of the payload is the drone named Ingenuity, that may be deployed if all goes well in February of 2021. 🤔



Set your calendar folks as this may be the first "drone" to fly on another planet. :) 👽 ☮

Very cool news Spark 317. Exciting possibilities. Sure hope we don't contaminate Mars with Covid 19. :oops:, :D .
When I watched the second clip of the Mars Helicopter lifting off the ground I somehow expected to see tentoes face to appear as it panned up.
