Nasa'S American Space agency, named "Ingenuity " for its revolutionary new Mars helicopter. The name was proposed by Vaneeza Rupani, Tuscaloosa County High School student in Alabama.
Rupani proposed the name and explained the motivation behind the name in the NASA essay contest "Name the Rover. " The contest asked participants to name the helicopter and explorer Mars which will be combined when departed for the Red Planet, possibly later this year.
Last March, NASA chose the name "Perseverance " For Mars Explorers, based on essays by students from Virginia. They returned to the essays that came in to also choose a name for the helicopter.
