NASA helicopter Ingenuity was scheduled to take the first powered, controlled flight on another planet today, but is on hold until at least April 14, reports. A test of Ingenuity’s 1.8-kilogram rotors on Friday showed a potential problem. “The helicopter team is reviewing telemetry to diagnose and understand the issue,” NASA said in a statement. “Following that, they will reschedule the full-speed test.” NASA noted the copter is “safe and healthy” and had sent information back to Earth.
