United Launch Alliance

United Launch Alliance (ULA) is a joint venture of Lockheed Martin Space Systems and Boeing Defense, Space & Security. ULA was formed in December 2006 by combining the teams at these companies which provide spacecraft launch services to the government of the United States. ULA launches from both coasts of the US. They launch their Atlas V vehicle from LC-41 in Cape Canaveral and LC-3E at Vandeberg. Their Delta IV launches from LC-37 at Cape Canaveral and LC-6 at Vandenberg.

Mars 2020 (Perseverance rover & Ingenuity helicopter)

Atop this ULA Atlas V rocket will be Perseverance, a car-sized rover which will explore an ancient river delta on Mars. Armed with a suite of six scientific instruments, Perseverance will primarily hunt for clues to the planet's distant past, and hopefully uncover signs of ancient life and habitability. The rover also carries an experiment that'll convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, a box-sized helicopter named Ingenuity that'll demonstrate powered flight on Mars, and a system that enables the rover to leave behind samples for later retrieval and return to Earth during NASA and ESA's ambitious sample return mission later this decade.

2021-02-18T19:15:00+0000

NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover will land in the Jezero crater using a MSL-inspired sky-crane at approximately 20:55 UTC. It will investigate an astrobiologically relevant ancient environment on Mars and investigate its surface geological processes and history, including the assessment of its past habitability, the possibility of past life on Mars, and the potential for preservation of biosignatures within accessible geological materials. It will cache sample containers along its route for a potential future Mars sample-return mission. Perseverance is also ferrying several cutting-edge technologies to the surface of Mars – including a helicopter named Ingenuity, the first aircraft to attempt powered, controlled flight on another planet.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Second Flight

2021-04-22T09:30:00+0000

For its second flight, the Ingenuity helicopter will climb to 16 feet (5 meters) and, after hovering briefly, it will go into a slight tilt and move sideways for 7 feet (2 meters). Then Ingenuity will come to a stop, hover in place, and make turns to point its color camera in different directions before heading back to the center of the airfield to land.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Third Flight

2021-04-25T13:00:00+0000

For its third flight, the Ingenuity helicopter will climb to an altitude of 5 meters and reach an airspeed of 2 meters per second heading 50 meters north and back for a total flight time of about 80 seconds and a total distance of 100 meters.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Fourth Flight

2021-04-30T14:49:00+0000

Ingenuity successfully completed its fourth flight, climbing to an altitude of 16 feet (5 meters) before flying south approximately 436 feet (133 meters) and then back, for an 872-foot (266-meter) round trip. In total, it was in the air for 117 seconds.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Fifth Flight

2021-05-07T23:31:00+0000

Ingenuity took off at Wright Brothers Field – the same spot where the helicopter took off and touched back down on all the other flights – but it landed elsewhere, which is another first for the rotorcraft. Ingenuity climbed to 16 feet (5 meters), then retraced its course from flight four, heading south 423 feet (129 meters). But instead of turning around and heading back, it actually climbed to a new height record of 33 feet (10 meters), where it took some color (as well as black-and-white) images of the area. After a total flight time of about 110 seconds, Ingenuity landed, completing its first one-way trip.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Sixth Flight

2021-05-27T19:26:00+0000

On the 91st Martian day, or sol, of NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission, the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter performed its sixth flight. The flight was designed to expand the flight envelope and demonstrate aerial-imaging capabilities by taking stereo images of a region of interest to the west. Ingenuity was commanded to climb to an altitude of 33 feet (10 meters) before translating 492 feet (150 meters) to the southwest at a ground speed of 9 mph (4 meters per second). At that point, it was to translate 49 feet (15 meters) to the south while taking images toward the west, then fly another 164 feet (50 meters) northeast and land. Telemetry from Flight Six shows that the first 150-meter leg of the flight went off without a hitch. But toward the end of that leg, something happened: Ingenuity began adjusting its velocity and tilting back and forth in an oscillating pattern. This behavior persisted throughout the rest of the flight. Prior to landing safely, onboard sensors indicated the rotorcraft encountered roll and pitch excursions of more than 20 degrees, large control inputs, and spikes in power consumption. Despite encountering this anomaly, Ingenuity was able to maintain flight and land safely on the surface within approximately 16 feet (5 meters) of the intended landing location.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Seventh Flight

2021-06-08T15:54:00+0000

The seventh flight of Ingenuity Mars Helicopter took it to a new base of operations about 106 meters south of its current location. This marked the second time the helicopter landed at an airfield that it did not survey from the air during a previous flight. Instead, the Ingenuity team relied on imagery collected by the HiRISE camera aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter that suggests this new base of operations is relatively flat and has few surface obstructions.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Eighth Flight

2021-06-22T00:27:00+0000

The 8th flight of Ingenuity Mars Helicopter took it to a new base of operations about 160 meters south of its previous location.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Ninth Flight

2021-07-05T09:03:00+0000

The 9th flight on Ingenuity Mars Helicopter was a success. Unlike with previous flights, this time Ingenuity flew over not the safe flat grounds, but over a sandy terrain called "Séítah". This kind of area is difficult, if not dangerous, for a rover to wheel through However, it can be easily surveyed from air. This proves that rover-helicopter combo can expand science value of the mission by covering more diverse areas which would not be possible to explore with a rover alone.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity Tenth Flight

2021-07-24T21:07:00+0000

With this flight Ingenuity crossed the 1-mile mark of total flown distance. This flight took the helicopter over a rocky area "Raised Ridges". The area is of interest to the scientists and is being considered to be visited by Perseverance rover in the future. The entire flight lasted 165.4 seconds and reached a maximum altitude of 12 meters.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity 11th Flight

2021-08-05T04:53:00+0000

This was the 11th flight for the Ingenuity helicopter. It was primarily a transfer flight, taking Ingenuity to a new area which became a starting point for the upcoming reconnaissance flight over a scientifically interesting region called "South Séítah".

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity 12th Flight

2021-08-16T12:57:00+0000

Flight 12 of the Ingenuity Mars helicopter took it toward "South Séítah" region to image the terrain and then back to the starting point at Airfiel H.

NASA Mars 2020 Ingenuity 13th Flight

2021-09-05T00:10:00+0000

Just as in the previous flight, Ingenuity once again took the trip over "South Séítah" region. This time Ingenuity imaged the ridgelines and other points of interest from a different perspective - pointing southwest, while the previous 12th flight took imagery in the opposite direction.
