Watch NASA mission control live as the Ingenuity helicopter attempts to fly on Mars on Monday

Summary List PlacementNASA is about to fly its Mars helicopter for the first time — a feat that could revolutionize spaceflight. The helicopter, called Ingenuity, traveled nearly 300 million miles to the red planet tucked inside the belly of the Perseverance rover. Now it's sitting in an airfield in Mars' Jezero Crater, where it's set to take the first controlled powered flight ever conducted on another planet. Ingenuity is set to conduct that flight autonomously early on Monday, and NASA expects to receive data from the helicopter around 6:15 a.m. ET.

Brother Rice’s Willie Shaw (26) runs the ball against Loyola. | Kirsten Stickney/For the Sun-TimesSt. Francis and Antioch finally get the nod as we head into the final week of the season. New additions to the Super 25: Antioch: There were two really easy calls this week on which teams to add to the rankings.

St. Francis: The opening week win against IC Catholic opened everyone’s eyes and the Spartans haven’t let up. Crete-Monee: The Warriors have been absolutely crushing opponents this season. Dropping out: Nazareth (2-2): The Roadrunners fall out after getting shut out 10-0 by Notre Dame. The amount of talent the team lost over the last few months is we...

Four Downs: News and notes from Week 5 in high school football

Simeon’s Malik Elzy after Simeon defeats Kenwood. | Allen Cunningham/For the Sun-TimesWhy there are no Public League teams in the rankings, Notre Dame is back and it’s time for All-Area and POY nominations. There are no Public League football teams in this week’s Super 25. That may be jarring to some, but it is my honest take on the current state of things. I’ve detailed everything Public League football has been up against over the past year in recent stories. There’s enough talent on the high-level Public League teams to be ranked, but they just aren’t there right now and it’s important to keep the Super 25 legitimate. I’ve kept a Public League team or two in the bottom of the rankings most of the season, choosing to give the powerhouses from the city the benefit of the doubt. There ar...

Fact-check: Does Durbin claim about Chicago area’s lead pipes hold water? Flushing it out is no lead-pipe cinch

Sen. Dick Durbin speaks to reporters at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. | Drew Angerer/Getty Images fileWhile Chicago is unique when it comes to its number of known lead service lines, experts told us it’s tough to determine the accuracy of Durbin’s statistic because no national inventory exists. President Joe Biden’s $2.7 trillion infrastructure plan has sparked criticism from Republicans over what kinds of projects should be included under the category of “infrastructure.” Last week, CNN anchor Poppy Harlow put the question to the Senate’s Democratic Majority Whip Dick Durbin, who responded with an example from his home state of Illinois. “Well, I can tell you, I do not exclude clean drinking water from the responsibilities of government and not only dealing with public health issu
