Mars Ingenuity found Perseverance Debris #Shorts

How were humans able to capture this shot of the debris field on Mars? The mars Ingenuity helicopter has conducted incredible science from this vantage point above, but it has also found the debris field from the Perseverance landing. This is a great series of shots here. We can see Perseverance’s back shell, the supersonic parachute, and a lot of other debris on the Mars surface in these images. This was from Ingenuity’s 26th flight which has been an incredible success story for the very first helicopter on Mars. At this stage it had flown for a total of 51.7 minutes over all of its flights. Considering the initial plan was to attempt no more than five flights, Ingenuity has exceeded all expectations. Before this demo mission began, we didn’t even know if a powered controlled flight like this was even possible on Mars. That’s pretty good for a small helicopter right!?
