NASA’s Ingenuity Helicopter captures spacecraft wreckage on Mars.

The captured image resembles a UFO-like object on mars grabbing attention to the theory of it being a martian object or it is related to aliens!

But it isn’t, the captured image is something related to aliens, rather it is the work of NASA, a component called a backshell that detached during the landing of the Perseverance rover on the surface of the red planet in February 2021.

“The backshell, nearly 15 feet in diameter, hit the ground at about 78 miles per hour, partially shattering. The parachute appears to be intact as do the suspension lines connecting the parachute to the backshell. But engineers have just started scrutinizing the new images in detail.’’ says the article in The New York Times.

The picture was captured by Ingenuity Helicopter. “During its 26th flight last week, Ingenuity took 10 pictures during its 159 seconds in the air covering 1,181 feet.”

“There’s definitely a sci-fi element to it,” Ian Clark, an engineer who worked on Perseverance’s parachute system, said of photographs released on Wednesday. “It exudes otherworldly, doesn’t it?” “They say a picture’s worth 1,000 words, but it’s also worth an infinite amount of engineering understanding,” Mr Clark said.
