Response to turbinetree (Original post)

1. I was confused earlier this morning about when that was supposed to happen

but finally got some clarification where the actual maneuvers happened ~5:30 am EDT and the actual image downloads were due back to Earth around ~9:30 am EDT for JPL to analyze.

Go big or go home! The #MarsHelicopter successfully completed its 2nd flight, capturing this image with its black-and-white navigation camera. It also reached new milestones of a higher altitude, a longer hover and lateral flying.
