Two friends got separated on Mars Nasa helicopter lands forever Perseverance takes picture
According to the report, the Ingenuity helicopter also faced problems in its last landing. Last month, on January 18, Ingenuity took off for the 72nd and last time. It was a short vertical flight. During the last flight, the helicopter reached a height of 12 meters and hovered for 4.5 seconds before coming down. According to the report, one meter above the surface of Mars, the helicopter lost contact with the Perseverance rover and it wobbled and fell.
It was the Perseverance rover that established communication with the Ingenuity helicopter. The picture that scientists received after the emergency landing showed that all four blades of Ingenuity were damaged. NASA had sent Ingenuity helicopter for a limited time to fly on Mars. The helicopter had already achieved its target.
Ingenuity landed on Mars in February 2021. On April 19 of the same year, the helicopter took its first flight in the 'world of aliens'. Whatever data the Perseverance team received from the Ingenuity helicopter, its assessment can be helpful for future Mars missions. It is very difficult for a helicopter to fly on Mars, because the gravity there is one third less than on Earth.
