    NASA is targeting no earlier than April 8 for the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter to make the first attempt at powered, controlled flight of an aircraft on another planet. Before the 4-pound (1.8-kilogram) rotorcraft can attempt its first flight, however, both it and its team must meet a series of daunting milestones.
    Now this is going to be great! . . . If it flies that is.
    If it doesn’t fly I hope it blows up real good.

      I’ll be rooting for Ingenuity. Those ultralight carbon-wrapped fiber legs were designed and manufactured by a couple of kids who went to high school in my small town. Their factory is not here, they now have a place up in Skagit County’s tulip country.

      Those legs are tubes, not rods. And they were under extreme pressure by JPL to keep the weight to an absolute minimum. So I am hoping there are no hard landings.
