Nasa's Ingenuity helicopter, operating on the surface of Mars, is aiming for new records for its next flight. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said that the small solar-charged rotorcraft will be "taking things to a new level" in Flight 9, its next journey, where Ingenuity will be travelling in high-speed across unfamiliar terrain far away from the Perseverence rover.

For its next flight, Ingenuity will try to break its own records in distance, time aloft, and groundspeed.
