This solar-powered helicopter was originally designed for a technology demonstration mission to show in five flights whether the atmosphere was thin. The planet, which has only 1 percent the density of Earth's atmosphere, is air exploration on Mars possible or not? At this point, the small aircraft transcends the boundaries of flight on the Red Planet and acts as a scout for the persistent astronaut, whose main tasks include searching for signs of Martian life and collecting dozens of specimens to bring to Earth in the future.
Now that genius is once again approaching perseverance, it is now possible to film its flights. The perseverance team is keen to start studying the delta closely, as the deltas here on Earth retain carbon-rich organic chemicals and the signs of life themselves. He stayed in the sky for 8 minutes and covered 4.65 kilometers. This is even more than what perseverance has done, and the Mars rover's odometer now stands at 4.39 km. NASA/JPL-Caltech
