The American Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA is now preparing the Ingenuity helicopter for its maiden flight, troubleshooting problems and problems, while the Perseverance rover continues to operate normally and delight earthlings with finds.
On the official page on the social network Twitter, which is maintained by NASA on behalf of Perseverance, interesting images have appeared, combined into one photo – these are stones located on the surface of the planet next to the rover.
Perseverance does not move away from Ingenuity to film the upcoming helicopter flight. Twitter notes that the rover managed to “roll” 270 meters, conducting surveys near the helicopter.
Perseverance landed on Mars on February 18, 2021. It is intended for exploration in the Jezero crater area. The rover has rather ambitious tasks in collecting samples, looking for signs of past microbial life, assessing viability and preparing for the landing of humans on Mars.
