NASA’s Mars helicopter Ingenuity is poised to make its first flight of 2022. Ingenuity will cover 207 feet during the 100-second flight, which will take the little chopper out of a rugged basin known as South Séítah, over a ridge and onto a plateau. Β«While short, the flight has a challenging start due to featureless sandy terrain that the helicopter currently sits on,Β» Martin Cacan, Ingenuity pilot at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, wrote in the blog post. Ingenuity has conducted 18 flights on Mars to date, the first occurring on April 19 and the most recent on Dec.
