Liftoff of NASA's Mars helicopter Ingenuity will occur no later than today if all goes to plan, according to a NASA press release."Instead, the Ingenuity team is relying on imagery collected by the HiRISE camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter that suggests this new base of operations is relatively flat and has few surface obstructions.NASA also has the Perseverance rover conducting land-based missions in the search for life.In the last couple of months, the Red Planet has become a hotspot for the US and China, with China landing a rover of its own on the planet.

"This will mark the second time the helicopter will land at an airfield that it did not survey from the air during a previous flight," NASA wrote." On May 22, Ingenuity flew its sixth mission that did not go so well.
