We are in August 2023, and the Ingenuity helicopter still flies over
Mars. There's no GPS satellite system on the planet, and a very little
atmosphere compared to Earth, but it is localizing itself with a
grey-scale camera that points to the ground, and it works like that...

Here is a video <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TP_ojUa6XtU>

The image processing computations are obtained from interpolation
performed at <https://twitter.com/stim3on/status/1419414689998594051>

transmitted down the JPL/NASA Laboratory at Caltech University...

Best regards,

Ingenuity made its 55th flight on August 12, 2023, what demonstrates the
robustness of the control GNU/Linux system, including in particularly
hostile conditions, an unknown environment and minimal supervision,
because the helicopter is almost autonomous, very very far from
everything somewhere in space.

Best regards,

*Ingenuity over planet Mars*

#Ingenuity #Perseverance #Mars2020 #Mars #NASA #Solarocks

<https://www.youtube.com/shorts/gV0iPwSCFBY>

Here is a look back at Ingenuity's 59th flight on Mars, as captured by
the Mastcam-Z on the Perseverance Rover.

In this view, I've heavily enhanced the dust blown away during takeoff.
You can also see dust devils moving in the background!

Best regards,
