Mars helicopter shares first aerial photos of planet's southern See Rock formations

Mars, Southern Basin - Ingenuity, a small robotic helicopter documenting Mars, sent back its first aerial photos of the planet's southern See Rock formations on Saturday.

While these formations have previously been observed through advanced radio telescopes, the new photos mark the first high-resolution images of the iconic structures located in the Southern Basin of the Red Planet.

"We are witnessing history," said Carl Sanford from NASA's Chattanooga, Tennessee division. "People will never forget where they were when they first saw these images."

Ingenuity will next visit the region's legendary Ruby Falls Crater and Mounto Lookouto, where scientists hope to capture seven Mars provinces in one panoramic image.
