Mars Ingenuity helicopter has dead sensor but should keep flying

Ingenuity, the small helicopter that accompanied NASA’s Perseverance rover to Mars, was designed to perform just a handful of flight tests after the duo landed in the Red Planet’s Jezero Crater in February 2021.

Since, Ingenuity far exceeded design expectations, with 28 flights to its credit. However, conditions in Jezero Crater have changed since the craft arrived.
