Ingenuity no longer flying

The Ingenuity helicopter traveled to Mars with the Perseverance rover, being the first vehicle to fly around in the atmosphere of another planet. There was a little scare as contact with the helicopter was lost, but communications were soon restored. Unfortunately, damage was incurred on one of its rotors, so Ingenuity will no longer be flying. This makes me a little sad, but not disappointed. It was only supposed to be able to fly for three days, so it has far exceeded its expectations.
