Figure A

NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter captured this view of Martian sand ripples on Oct. 27, 2023, during Flight 64. The spot where the helicopter would later park and remain during Mars solar conjunction is visible in this image.

Figure A is the same image with an arrow pointing to the exact landing location.

The Ingenuity Mars Helicopter was built by JPL, which also manages the project for NASA Headquarters. It is supported by NASA's Science Mission Directorate. NASA's Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley and NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, provided significant flight performance analysis and technical assistance during Ingenuity's development. AeroVironment Inc., Qualcomm, and SolAero also provided design assistance and major vehicle components. Lockheed Space designed and manufactured the Mars Helicopter Delivery System. JPL is managed for the agency by Caltech in Pasadena, California.
