The rover will investigate an icy area on Mars known as Utopia Planitia. It will later meet a U.S. rover that has been on the planet since February.
If all goes to plan, China could become only the second country to operate a rover on Mars for an extended period.
Ingenuity will ascend to an altitude of 16 feet during its next flight.
The space agency has been working on a Mars glider prototype for years, and in a recent Q&A scientists said it would be possible to fly one on the Red Planet.
Perseverance took some of Mars' CO2-rich atmosphere and created enough oxygen to allow an astronaut to breathe for 10 minutes.
"We have been thinking for so long about having our Wright brothers moment on Mars, and here it is," MiMi Aung said.
The little helicopter flew in the early hours of Monday, and photos were beamed back to Earth hours later. It marks the first time humanity has conducted powered flight on another planet.
"Showing something is possible is the first step in making it routine," researcher Jonathan Black told Newsweek.
A software issue has prevented the little helicopter from taking off so far, but a fix is now underway.
Engineers are preparing to carefully reinstall the robot's flight software. NASA is aiming to announce a new flight date next week.
Perseverance has snapped tens of thousands of images, performed geology via laser, and successfully protected a helicopter. And the mission is only just beginning.
NASA hopes the helicopter will demonstrate powered, controlled flight on another planet for the first time.
A colorful arc in a photo of the Martian sky is trending on social media, but is it really a rainbow like we'd see on Earth?
Perseverance might weigh less on Mars than it does on Earth, but the rover is still hefty and heavier than its predecessors.
The space agency hopes ingenuity will make the first powered flight on another world.
The car-sized vehicle has been operating on Mars since 2012.
The space agency hopes to make history by completing the first ever powered, controlled flight on another planet.
Google searches around these questions spiked after a Tiktok video falsely claimed Mars got its color after humans destroyed it in a nuclear war.
While many nations are sending technology and now people into space, none appear to be anywhere close to America's capability to get people to the moon.
The TikTok video, watched almost one million times, claims humans destroyed the red planet's resources in a nuclear war and moved to Earth.
Mars helicopter Ingenuity will take part in a test that could be the first-ever demonstration of powered flight on another planet.
The recording contains sounds of about 30 impacts, heard in a series of pops or clicks. It is used to identify and classify the structure and make-up of rocks.
The cloud, captured by a camera on a European Space Agency craft, forms above the 12-mile-high Arsia Mons volcano on the Red Planet.
Researchers think the area around the rover's landing site was home to a river delta billions of years ago—making it a promising spot to search for signs of ancient microbial life.
In a video shared by CBS news on Friday, NASA engineer Elizabeth Duffy describes the recording as "awesome," and said the new audio will allow scientists to discover a "whole complete story of Mars."
The probe consists of an orbiter, and a rover which will be sent down to the surface of Mars in the coming months.
The account has shared a number of photos taken with the vehicle's camera.
Perseverance has not moved from its landing spot yet as NASA scientists have had a lot of checks to do.
The photos were snapped by the Mastcam-Z camera system, which mission operators describe as the rover's "main eyes."
The little decal can be seen in some of the images that NASA's rover has beamed back to Earth so far.
