The goal of the mission is to discover signs of ancient life and collect samples for possible return to Earth.

The rover is making its way to the delta, which is the site of an ancient river delta where scientists hope to find evidence of past life on the red planet. However, the journey is slow-going, so the Ingenuity helicopter has joined forces with the rover to scout ahead and find the best path forward.

Although the experimental use of this rover-helicopter combo team has its challenges, it has proven to be successful, allowing Ingenuity to act as a scout and help the rover navigate the treacherous terrain.

Now, the pair has arrived at Abercastell, a location close to the first stop on exploring the delta, called Tenby, where the rover will spend several days on what could be some of the most exciting scientific work of the mission.

This rover-helicopter duo is a groundbreaking development that is revolutionizing the way we explore Mars. You may visit NASA's webpage and check the current location of both the rover and the helicopter.
