Ingenuity nasa - NASA's Mars helicopter Ingenuity to keep flying through September (at least)

Citizen scientist Seán Doran created this mosaic of NASA's Mars rover Perseverance and Ingenuity helicopter, using 62 images captured by Perseverance on April 6, 2021.

In March 2022, NASA announced that it would continue to fly Ingenuity through at least September.

Once there, Ingenuity will be investigating two dry river channels and helping log for future routing assistance for Perseverance.

On 30 April 2021, the fourth flight successfully captured numerous color photos and explored the surface with its black-and-white navigation camera.

In order to simulate the much reduced gravity field of Mars 38% of Earth's , 62% of Earth's gravity was offset by a line pulling upwards during flight tests.

While the RTE color camera is not necessary for flight and may be switched off as in flights 7 and 8 , the NAV camera works throughout each flight, catching the first frame before takeoff and the last frame after landing.

The altitude record for a helicopter flight on Earth is 41,000 feet.

Description: The start time of the flight is chosen depending on the temperature management of the battery, that need to warm up after the night and the engines.
