Thanks! That always confuses me
(atterrir has double t but amerrir is with a single m and alunir with a single l).

[url=https://apnews.com/article/technology-science-planets-mars-1f39e9b9c56ad3bbe3634aeabfa4abaf]NASA's Mars helicopter takes flight, 1st for another planet[/url][quote]CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - NASA's experimental helicopter Ingenuity rose into the thin air above the dusty red surface of Mars on Monday, achieving the first powered flight by an aircraft on another planet.
<snip>
Ground controllers had to wait more than three excruciating hours before learning whether the pre-programmed flight had succeeded more than 170 million miles (287 million kilometers) away. Adding to their anxiety: A software error prevented the helicopter from lifting off a week earlier and had engineers scrambling to come up with a fix.

When the news finally came, the operations center filled with applause, cheers and laughter. More followed when the first black and white photo from Ingenuity appeared on the Mission Control screens, showing the helicopter's shadow as it hovered above the surface of Mars. Next came the stunning color images of the copter descending back to the surface, taken by Perseverance, "the best host little Ingenuity could ever hope for," Aung said in thanking everyone.

The helicopter achieved its planned altitude of 10 feet (3 meters), according to the altimeter data, and hovered for a full 30 seconds, appearing stable. The touchdown looked just as clean. More details were expected in the coming hours and days.[/quote]

Surely it's more of a drone than a helicopter?
