So now people think that Perseverance caught t3h Fl@m1nG Gh3Y

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Lens flares.

Must be related to Gates chips in the Covid vaccines.

Delayed until April 14 at the earliest because they need to fix a glitch.

That blows. But considering the round trip light speed time, no one on Earth can be flying the thing, it's got to do it for itself which is very impressive to say the least. Correct me if I'm a dipshit on this point, I haven't done a lot of reading about it.

No, you're right. Mars is currently over 15 light minutes away from Earth, so the helicopter has to fly and land autonomously.
