This is really cool. It seems to be just a test of technology, but I bet people have worked on it for many years. When the air is that thin then getting anything to fly is hard. A standard drone people use on Earth could not take off there.

Absolutely, it's an enormous engineering achievement, it really is vastly harder than it looks.

an incredible achievement indeed
