Mars helicopter Ingenuity telephones residence, breaking 63-day silence

The Ingenuity Mars helicopter’s two-month silent stretch is over.

Ingenuity received in contact with its handlers on June 28 by way of its robotic associate, the Perseverance rover, NASA officers introduced on Friday, June 30. It was the primary such communication since April 26, when the 4-pound (1.8 kilograms) chopper went darkish towards the tip of its 52nd flight on the ground of Mars’ Jezero Crater.
