The US Space Agency (NASA) announced that it has decided to extend the mission of its helicopter on Mars.

NASA said that the first three flights of the drone, called the Ingeniotti, went well, allowing the transition from the demonstration stage to the operational stage.

This means that the helicopter will now support NASA’s Perseverance spacecraft, to help it search for traces of life on Mars.

The new phase will last for 30 days with astronomical calculations of the planet Mars, but the team expressed hope that it could be extended further.
