Photo of the Day: The Mars Helicopter Is Now in Its Full Flight Configuration...

With its four legs now placed in their full flight configuration, the Ingenuity helicopter is ready to be deployed from NASA's Perseverance rover onto the surface of Mars...as of March 30, 2021.

Just thought I'd share this latest photo taken by a camera on Perseverance's robotic arm showing all four legs of the Ingenuity helicopter now extended into their final flight configuration. The small aircraft should be released from the belly of NASA's latest Mars rover within the next few days...as Ingenuity's historic first flight at Jezero Crater remains scheduled for Thursday, April 8. Stay tuned!
