The Perseverance rover took this picture of Ingenuity on its second flight


NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter has taken to the Martian skies for the second time. On 22 April, the small drone made its second flight a few days after its first, which took place on 19 April.

Ingenuity is the first craft ever to attempt powered flight on another world. In the first flight, it rose 3 metres into the air, hovered for about 30 seconds, and rotated before landing again. The Perseverance rover observed the entire thing from a safe distance.
