ingenuity it first flew two months later in April 2021 and was initially tasked with just a few test flights to demonstrate its groundbreaking technology. However, after exceeding expectations POTthe mission has been expanded to serve as a Perseverance scout looking for signs of ancient life in Mars and collect samples for their future return to Earth. Ingenuity made a total of 46 flights for a total distance of 10.1 km.

Flights 45 and 46 were operated only three days apart on February 22 and 25, while flight 47 is expected any day now. (Europe Press)
