NASA’s Mars Helicopter has successfully completed a series of tests and is ready to take flight over the Red Planet, the US space agency said.

“The next time we fly, we fly on Mars,” MiMi Aung, Project Manager for Mars Helicopter at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said in a statement.

The Mars Helicopter will launch as a technology demonstrator with the Mars 2020 rover on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket in July 2020 from the Space Launch Complex 41 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.
