The resourcefulness and splendor of individuals striving to beat the difficulties of interplanetary travel are what permit every one of us to encounter the marvels of room investigation, Rupani wrote in her exposition, as indicated by a news discharge by NASA.

"Ingenuity is what allows people to accomplish wonderful things, and it allows us to expand our horizons to the edges of the universe", it said. That's its sole goal, and the 4-lb craft doesn't have any other instruments on board, as it's essentially a demonstrator that will set up the design and development of future aerial exploration craft to help with the study of Mars.

Rupani's was among 28,000 essays submitted to NASA by K-12 students from every US state and territory recommending names for the next Mars rover.

Rupani's submission was among the 28,000 essays received by NASA as part of the naming of the Mars Rover, which is called Perseverance.

The administrator of NASA Jim Bridenstine also tweeted about the naming process, "Our Mars helicopter will attempt the 1st powered flight on another world".

While NASA announced in March that its next rover would be named Perseverance based on seventh-grader Alexander Mather's essay, the agency decided to also choose a name for the helicopter that will accompany the rover to Mars. Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby also congratulated Rupani for the honor.

Ms Rupani has been interested in space science since she was a young child, according to her mother Nausheen Rupani. Ms Rupani's essay on why she chose the name "Ingenuity" highlights her creativity, originality, and intelligence.

Ingenuity has already completed testing in a NASA simulation chamber in Southern California.

Perseverance, with Ingenuity attached to its belly in a protective cover, will launch in July from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and land on Mars in February. After it arrives on the red planet, the helicopter will remain under a protected covering to protect it from debris until the timing is right for the aircraft to be deployed.

If Ingenuity is successful during its 31-day experimental trip, the small helicopter will prove that powered flights can be accomplished on Mars, NASA said.
