The Ingenuity Mars Helicopter's 52nd flight has been deemed a success despite a temporary communication failure during the landing. The Perseverance rover, acting as a relay, re-established contact with Ingenuity when it returned within range. Flight 52 aimed to reposition the helicopter and capture images of Martian terrain. The Ingenuity team plans to continue flights if the helicopter's health exams remain positive.
