Historic Mars weather delay pushes Ingenuity helicopter’s next flight to Sunday

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars helicopter has notched yet another milestone — the first weather-related flight delay on another planet.

Ingenuity was scheduled to make its 19th Red Planet hop on Jan. 5. On New Year’s Day, however, a strong dust storm kicked up near Jezero Crater, which the helicopter and its robotic partner, NASA’s life-hunting Perseverance rover, have been exploring since February 2021.
