The Perseverance rover continues to prepare for the launch of the Ingenuity helicopter, while not forgetting about the main work.
Recently, the rover sent photos of the aircraft unloading process. There is no new data yet, but at least on March 31, the helicopter extended all four of its supports and took up a position to separate from the rover. Recall that its launch will take place no earlier than April 8.
As for the rest of Perseverance’s concerns, he discovered an unusual stone about 15 cm wide, which he has already managed to explore with a number of his instruments, including a laser, which left marks on the stone.
