Nasa JPL tweeted the photograph of Ingenuity after it was dropped from the rover's belly that ended its journey of almost 471 million kilometres with Perseverance.

Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) on Sunday confirmed the touchdown of the Ingenuity helicopter, which was attached to the belly of the Perseverance rover, on the Martian surface. Nasa JPL tweeted the photograph of Ingenuity after it was dropped from the rover's belly that ended its journey of almost 471 million kilometres with Perseverance. The visible track shows how the rover drove away from Ingenuity after dropping it onto the airfield.

“#MarsHelicopter touchdown confirmed! Its 293 million mile (471 million km) journey aboard @NASAPersevere ended with the final drop of 4 inches (10 cm) from the rover's belly to the surface of Mars today. Next milestone? Survive the night,” tweeted Nasa JPL.
