The mission team is optimistic that Ingenuity will soon fly again.
NASA's Mars helicopter Ingenuity didn't get off the ground as planned earlier this month.
Ingenuity was scheduled to make its 14th Red Planet sortie on Sept. 18, a relatively short and simple hop that would have demonstrated the little chopper's ability to fly with slightly higher rotor speeds — 2,700 revolutions per minute (RPM) rather than the usual 2,537 RPM.
Flaring, the controlled burning of unwanted natural gas during oil and gas recovery, is a commonplace procedure in the energy industry. But it’s both wasteful and damaging to the environment. Reporting from Houston, Texas, the FT’s Justin Jacobs discovers that moves are now being made to curb flaring, but how effective will they be?
"Engaging with art can make the world felt. And this feeling spurs thinking, connection and even action," says Olafur Eliasson, the Danish-Icelandic climate-focused artist, about the power of art as activism. Eliasson is part of a growing movement of artists not only bringing more awareness to environmental perils, but also inspiring more urgency around our climate crisis. This week, the crisis was underscored as even more critical with the UN's "code red for humanity" climate report, which U.S. special climate envoy John Kerry said calls for an "overwhelming urgency" for action.
