Mars Helicopter Ingenuity, now on its own. Safely tucked under Mars Perseverance Rover’s belly, protected during the 300 million miles journey towards the Red planet and endured the intense pressure upon Entry, Descent and Landing on Mars. Now survived one Martian cold night and more days for the commissioning part making sure it is flight worthy. Mars Helicopter Ingenuity maybe little. But, the mission is one big leap for the rest of space and Mars explorations. If its goal, powered flight on Mars, is deemed successful. This will pave the way for more efficient, fast and safer future rovers and eventually humans to explore Mars.
This batch of photos are frames of the Entry, Descent and Landing maneuver. Captured by EDL_RDCAM (Rover Downlook Camera) and partly from NAVCAM_LEFT of the rover. Here’s a video of the raw images compiled. You can still view the individual frames on the table below.
Pictures is worth thousand words. So, I’m just sharing all photos as captured by NASA Mars Perseverance Rover currently on the Red planet. Photo, crawled using NASA API. Really helpful delivered to my inbox. With additional steps, reflected the structured table into this post. Here’s how you can go back to the technical on how we crawl these raw images as Percy streams it to NASA lend us with the API
