Oh man oh man oh man oh man -- the Ingenuity Helicopter on swung over and took a view of the backshell and parachute used to land Perseverance on Mars! It is so cool what we can get up to when we have a little drone accompanying our rovers.

@thomasconnor I hope we'll be able to clean this mess up soon 🙈

@thomasconnor I wish NASA would skip the sample return mission and send a GeoProbe to mars. Or the moon. I would love to see real sub-surface cores.

@thomasconnor these photos always look so bad to me. I mean, i know its not an iphone or anything but cant we get better images maybe in color. And whats the deal with the white blowout in the middle?

@thomasconnor oh my gosh they found the stuff!!!!!!!!! im so happy ingenuity is still chugging along they're friends on an adventure and i love it

@thomasconnor Hopefully some future colonist will be able to make a nice gazebo roof from that wreck.
