Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

    Check it again and see if it's just an image on the ground, and then an image in the air, and then an image on the ground again. I don't think there's actual video available yet, but I'm hoping they caught continuous frames and are planning to use up the needed bandwidth to get it back to Earth.

    Not going to be much for a 10 second flight. Google "ingenuity" and "NASA" and then click on the animated copter in the Wiki entry.

    It will be interesting to see if they cover this tonight, after pretty much writing it off as a loss.
