Big Tech Update

Ingenuity’s first flight on Mars has officially been delayed

The wait to see Ingenuity in action on Mars just got a little longer. 

NASA’s Mars helicopter is now expected to take flight on the red planet later this week. The original test flight was scheduled for yesterday, Sunday, April 11. The flight was delayed due to an issue with Ingenuity’s rotor blades. The issue was discovered during a test of the blades on Friday, April 9. 

“During a high-speed spin test of the rotors on Friday, the command sequence controlling the test ended early due to a ‘watchdog’ timer expiration. This occurred as it was trying to transition the flight computer from ‘Pre-Flight’ to ‘Flight’ mode. The helicopter is safe and healthy and communicated its full telemetry set to Earth,” NASA explained in a statement.  

NASA is confident that the rotor issue will be fixed in time for an official flight this week. So when is Ingenuity scheduled to take flight this week and how can you watch?
