  1. For the first time, an extraterrestrial drone helicopter is set to launch with the Perseverance rover mission to Mars within the next two month. From Wikipedia, "Ingenuity is a robotic helicopter that is planned to be used to test the technology to scout interesting targets on Mars, and help plan the best driving route for future Mars rovers. The small drone helicopter is planned for deployment in 2021 from the Perseverance rover as part of the Mars 2020 mission." See, Mars Helicopter

    The helicopter is designed to provide overhead images for scouting the path of Perseverance with approximately ten times the resolution of orbital images.
