Daring NASA Helicopter Captures Stunning View Of The Martian Desert

Daring NASA Helicopter Captures Stunning View Of The Martian Desert

NASA's trusty helicopter will soon enter some precarious terrain.

Over a series of at least three flights, NASA will send Ingenuity across an expanse of desert dubbed "Séítah.

The space agency released an image from a trip across this terrain, captured in midair using Ingenuity's high-resolution color camera.

The image shows windswept sand in the foreground, and hilly, even mountainous terrain beyond.

You can also spot the helicopter's shadow on the bottom of the frame, and a glimpse of the ball-like end of one of its legs on the upper left side of the image.

The Ingenuity helicopter, an experimental robot, has vastly exceeded engineers' expectations.
