First Flight on Mars

Martian exploration takes flight into the future. On Monday at 9:00am Australian Eastern Standard Time, NASA received data confirming that the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter successfully took off from the Martian surface – the first human-made powered aircraft to do so. This is a remarkable milestone for Martian exploration and opens the gate for a new way to explore Mars.

Dr. Tanya Hill, Senior Curator of Astronomy at Museums Victoria joined us to tell us more about this high-flying achievement.
