Fifth flight successful! The #MarsHelicopter begins a new phase to test the future of aerial exploration. http://go.nasa.gov/ingenuity https://twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/1390826543723683842
Tomorrow, the #MarsHelicopter is headed for a new landing zone in the direction I’ve been traveling. Standing by to record as it makes its first one-way trip. https://twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/1390401377378045955
See how the same technology that helped me avoid hazards while landing on Mars could be used to help us better understand oceans back on Earth. Put your questions in the comments for the experts about to set sail on this expedition. https://twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/1390080394146455553
Fourth flight successful. The #MarsHelicopter team is soaring. https://twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/1388200058491789315
I’ll be watching tomorrow as the #MarsHelicopter makes another attempt at Flight 4. Looking forward to it. https://twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/1387877961445953539
In three flights, the #MarsHelicopter nailed its tech demo goals. Flight 4 pushes it even farther and faster. Reframing my shot and getting ready for tomorrow’s flight. https://twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/1387568251412963328
Oh hey, there I am! Never thought I’d be the subject of another photographer on Mars. Great capture by the #MarsHelicopter team.
How does an idea to build a robot like me or to fly a #MarsHelicopter take off? Find out from my team who will take your questions. https://twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/1387148863723606018
With two flights down, the #MarsHelicopter is ready to get sporty. Flight #3 planned for this Sunday, and it’ll even stretch my ability to capture it in frame. Looking forward to this.
#MarsHelicopter Flight #2 is in the books! I’ve captured its higher, bolder flight, and I’ll be sending back all my latest frames soon. Meanwhile, here's a quick preview, including takeoff and two turns.
Getting comfy with my cameras and bringing my subject into sharp focus. Of course, getting the shot is always easier when your subject nails their mark. Here are zoomed-in views of the #MarsHelicopter's takeoff and landing on flight #1. Getting set up for flight #2.
The #MarsHelicopter is going bigger and bolder for its second flight. I’m ready to get more photos and video. https://twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/1385013379035590659
Another huge first: converting CO2 into oxygen on Mars. Working off the land with what’s already here, my MOXIE instrument has shown it can be done!
Future explorers will need to generate oxygen for rocket fuel and for breathing on the Red Planet. http://go.nasa.gov/3eoXDDd
The #MarsHelicopter isn’t the only technology demo I brought to Mars. I’ve also got “MOXIE”– an instrument that will test converting carbon dioxide into oxygen. It could pave the way for future human explorers. http://go.nasa.gov/3cdMF3X https://twitter.com/Dr_ThomasZ/status/1384607358941290501
