In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter Completes 50th Flight



NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter has completed its 50th flight on Mars. The first aircraft on another world reached the half-century mark on April 13, traveling over 1,057.09 feet (322.2 meters) in 145.7 seconds. The helicopter also achieved a new altitude record of 59 feet (18 meters) before alighting near the half-mile-wide (800-meter-wide) “Belva Crater.”

NASA is talking about the potential next Mars flyer

NASA's Perseverance rover has already dropped sample tubes in a special pick-up zone on Mars' topside. NASA and the European Space Agency are presently blueprinting a joint Mars Sample Return campaign that will gather samples of Martian rocks and regolith and return them to Earth. The campaign includes two Mars Sample Recovery Helicopters that will retrieve pre-filled sample tubes and deliver them to a rocket-in-waiting that will then vault those specimens into Mars orbit.

[E]ach of the Mars Sample Return helicopters would be outfitted with wheels and a small robot arm. "Everything is conceptual," said Grip, adding that the decision to fly this mission is not finalized.

An Ode to Perseverance and Ingenuity

In the vast expanse where dreams take flight,
A tale unfolds of courage and might.
Mars, the distant red planet's embrace,
Witnesses a duo, bound by space.

In the history of the cosmos, their story engraved,
Perseverance and Ingenuity, bold and brave.
Their legacy echoes, inspiring the souls,
To reach for the stars, to achieve their goals.

Perseverance, a wanderer on alien soil,
Unraveling mysteries, with unyielding toil.
Its robotic arm, a gentle touch bestowed,
Collecting samples, where the martian past’s secrets flowed.

But lo, a companion, the aerial acrobat of the skies,
Above rusty landscapes, it defied the ties.
A helicopter, a pioneer's grace,
Defying gravity, in an extraterrestrial space.

Across the crimson dunes, they fly and rove,
Martian exploration, endlessly strove.
Earth watched in wonder, hearts filled with pride,
As these brave emissaries explore Jezero and beyond far and wide.

Together they push boundaries, hand in hand,
Humanity's spirit, echoing across the sand.
For in their union, a message resounds clear,
That dreams and determination can conquer all fear.

Their mission began at the Octavia E. Butler Landing Site.
Wright Brothers Field where Ingenuity first took flight.
Séítah, Máaz, Tenby, Mandu Wall and others explored,
Collecting samples, ten cached at Three Forks, the rest remain aboard.

Everyday they dance, a cosmic ballet,
Mars2020's legacy, in a celestial display.
Ingenuity's blades whisper secrets unknown,
As Perseverance roams, etching paths above the stone.

Their tireless endeavors, a testament true,
To the boundless potential, within me and you.
For as we gaze upon the butterscotch skies above,
We're reminded of resilience, courage, and love.

So let the spirit of Perseverance forever thrive,
In the hearts of dreamers, who dare to strive.
And may Ingenuity's wings inspire us to be,
Explorers of the unknown, seekers of destiny.

For in the grand tapestry of the cosmos above,
Mars2020's legacy, a testament of our love.
To unravel the universe, one discovery at a time,
Together we'll soar, with passion so sublime.

After Three Years on Mars, NASA's Ingenuity Helicopter Mission Ends


NASA’s history-making Ingenuity Mars Helicopter has ended its mission at the Red Planet after surpassing expectations and making dozens more flights than planned. While the helicopter remains upright and in communication with ground controllers, imagery of its Jan. 18 flight sent to Earth this week indicates one or more of its rotor blades sustained damage during landing and it is no longer capable of flight.
Originally designed as a technology demonstration to perform up to five experimental test flights over 30 days, the first aircraft on another world operated from the Martian surface for almost three years, performed 72 flights, and flew more than 14 times farther than planned while logging more than two hours of total flight time.
