    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Forget powered atmospheric flight. We might have had faster-than-light travel by now.

    First Video of NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter in Flight, Includes Takeoff and Landing (High-Res)

    In this video captured by NASA’s Perseverance rover, the agency's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter took the first powered, controlled flight on another planet on April 19, 2021.

    The rover was parked at “Van Zyl Overlook,” about 211 feet (64.3 meters) away in Mars' Jezero Crater and chronicled the flight operations with its cameras.

    These images from the rover’s Mastcam-Z cameras show the helicopter hovering above the Red Planet's surface. During this first flight, the helicopter climbed to an altitude of 10 feet (3 meters), hovered, and then touched back down on the surface of Mars.

    Ingenuity is a technology demonstration. The 4-pound (1.8-kilogram) rotorcraft will help determine whether future explorations on Mars could include an aerial perspective.

    Perseverance touched down at "Octavia E. Butler Landing" with Ingenuity attached to its belly on Feb. 18, 2021. The helicopter was deployed to the surface on April 3.

    Second Flight:

    NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter successfully completed a second, more challenging flight on the Red Planet on April 22, 2021.

    Flight Test No. 2 aimed for a higher maximum altitude, longer flight time, and sideways movement. The second flight test took place at “Wright Brothers Field” in Jezero Crater, Mars. During the 52-second flight, the helicopter climbed to 16 feet (5 meters) compared to its first takeoff of 10 feet (3 meters). It also flew about 7 feet (2 meters) sideways and turned three times. The Ingenuity team at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California determined that the flight was successful after receiving data from the helicopter and imagery from the Perseverance Mars rover.

    Third Flight:

    NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter takes off and lands in this video captured on April 25, 2021, by Mastcam-Z, an imager aboard NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover. As expected, the helicopter flew out of its field of vision while completing a flight plan that took it 164 feet (50 meters) downrange of the landing spot. Keep watching, the helicopter will return to stick the landing. Top speed for today's flight was about 2 meters per second, or about 4.5 miles-per-hour.

    I suppose that it is too expensive to hire actors these days.

    More robotic replacement.

    That's footage of a drone flight in Nevada with a lens filter. Prove me wrong.
