Space.com has posted a new selfie taken by the Perseverance rover, which also shows a small Ingenuity helicopter preparing for its maiden flight.

This selfie was stitched together from 62 photos taken on Tuesday, April 6th. Scientist Sean Doran, who handled the processing, noted that he spent several hours combining the images, as well as eliminating noise, equalizing the exposure and bringing the final image to such a state.

“The Martian rover Perseverance took a selfie with the Ingenuity helicopter, which is about 4 meters away in this image. The picture was taken on April 6, 2021, on the 46th day of the mission, ”NASA officials said.

Earlier, NASA announced that the first attempt at a controlled manned flight on another planet using an Ingenuity helicopter should take place on April 11. In this regard, NASA invites everyone to witness this historic event.

According to NASA representatives, if the flight is successful, future missions to the Red Planet will definitely use helicopters, which can serve as scouts for rovers and collect data on their own.
