Answer: B

NASA is hoping to make history early on Monday when the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter attempts the first powered, controlled flight on another planet. 

  • The space agency had originally planned the flight for April 11 but postponed it over a software issue that was identified during a planned high-speed test of the aircraft’s rotors. 
  • The issue has since been resolved, and the 1.8 kilograms drone could achieve its feet by around 7.30 GMT.
