NASA’s Lost Helicopter On Mars Calls Back After Two Months

NASA was able to re-establish contact with a lost helicopter on Mars after two long months of silence. NASA’s small robotic helicopter Ingenuity, also known as Ginny, got lost on April 26 when it began its 52nd flight on the Red Planet. The agency has regained access to the helicopter and said the chopper is healthy.

NASA Will Send More Helicopters To Mars

If you ever heard about the ‘Ingenuity’ helicopter then fine, but if you didn’t, then let us tell you that it’s a small helicopter sent by NASA to Mars along with the ‘Perseverance’ rover. Though its main purpose was to just test the idea of ‘helicopter working on Mars’, unexpectedly it performed so well in all areas that NASA considers replacing rovers with helicopters in the next Mars missions.
