Telegraph, 26 Apr 2021
Nasa’s Ingenuity helicopter has completed its third flight on Mars, flying “faster and further” than it did in any test flights on Earth.

Nasa said the helicopter travelled 50 metres (164 feet) at a top speed of two metres per second (6.6 feet per second).

It was Ingenuity’s third flight since it made its historic first hop on the Red Planet earlier this month.
