NASA engineers have rendered the the Mars helicopter Ingenuity’s third flight in three dimensions. The footage offers new perspective and depth to the April 25 flight.
The Perseverance rover recorded the flight with the zoomable dual-camera Mastcam-Z imager located on its mast, or “head.” The cameras provided a stereoscopic view of the helicopter’s movements.
