NASA’s Mars Helicopter has new images taken from the sky during its latest 12th aerial lookout.
The famous mini-helicopter flew over the South Seitah region of Mars, with a round trip flight that pushed it up to 33 feet in altitude for 169 seconds, traveling a total of 1,475 feet.
These images were produced by the craft’s high-resolution color camera mounted in the helicopter’s fuselage and pointed approximately 22 degrees below the horizon.
Selected photos show Ingenuity’s scouting abilities acquired on August 16, 2021, Sol 174 of the Perseverance rover mission.
