The thing flew for the first time on April 19, 2021, and has been at it ever since, taking to the Martian sky for a total of 33 times (last time on September 24, 2022), and giving us humans a totally new perspective of the Martian world, and some of the human hardware already in place there.
A different perspective is what scientists need for this patch of Martian soil, pictured in the main photo of this piece as seen from an altitude of 265 km (165 km) by the HiRISE orbital camera. It’s a location scientists don’t share much about, except for the fact it “could also be a potential future exploration site for a Mars Science Helicopter.” That means it’s probably somewhere in the Jezero Crater, the place where Ingenuity is presently active.
Humans would like a closer look at this region because they need to know more about the type of soil they’re staring at, which may be “either be an ancient fan, or perhaps the result of more recent recurring slope lineae.”
It’s unclear at this point how far from this location the helicopter is. As a sort of trivia, you should know that from landing and until now, the thing traveled by air 7,392 meters (24,253 feet), reaching the highest altitude of 12 meters (39 feet) and a top speed of 20 kph (12 mph).
