Figure 1

The Mars Helicopter Base Station, seen here as the upper, gold-colored box near the back of NASA's Perseverance rover, stores and routes communications between NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter and mission controllers on Earth. (An annotated version of the image circles the base station in blue.)

Ingenuity will attempt the first powered, controlled flight at Mars.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory built and will manage operations of Perseverance and Ingenuity for the agency. Caltech in Pasadena, California, manages JPL for NASA.
