NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter makes its 24th flight on Mars

It was up, up, and away last weekend for NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter, which completed its 24th Martian flight on Sunday (April 3).

The sortie was just a short repositioning hop, covering 154 feet (47 meters) of ground in 69.5 seconds at a maximum altitude of 33 feet (10 m). But it was an important flight, helping reposition Ingenuity for its exit out of the Séítah region of Mars’ Jezero Crater on its way to an ancient river delta, where the helicopter will work in tandem with NASA’s life-hunting, sample-collecting Perseverance rover
