Mars helicopter Ingenuity snaps epic photo of rover tracks, will attempt 3rd flight Sunday

NASA’s history-making Mars helicopter Ingenuity will make its third Red Planet flight this weekend, if all goes according to plan.

The Ingenuity team is targeting early Sunday morning (April 25) for sortie number three. The flight plan calls for Ingenuity to get about 16.5 feet (5 meters) above the floor of Mars’ Jezero Crater, travel a total of 330 feet (100 m) and stay aloft for 80 seconds, chief pilot Håvard Grip of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory wrote in a blog post today (April 23).
