NASA has successfully completed it’s third flight on Mars with the fourth happening in a few days.
After several delays, our fingers are crossed in hopes that Ingenuity takes to Martian skies.
NASA has to perform a software update on its autonomous helicopter. A helicopter that is currently on the surface of Mars.
A timer brought an end to pre-flight testing pushing the expected launch date for Ingenuity to 14th April.
On 3rd April, Ingenuity was ejected from the Perseverance rover and the 1.8kg drone had to survive on its own for the first time in -90 degree Celsius temperatures.
The Martian atmosphere does some really strange things to sound, and now you can hear that for yourself.

Perseverance has snapped its first photos and sent them back 200 million kilometres for us to gawk at.
