    When a drone pilot freestyles his/her way into a tree, we often, most intelligently, send another drone through the branches, pulling a rope. We're not the brightest bunch, but we're persistent.

    That's the whole point of Ingenuity. Mars has an atmosphere, but it's extremely thin compared to Earth's. The point of Ingenuity was to see if they could design something that would fly in Mars' atmosphere. And they did!

    There's not really a need for a contingency, it was built primarily to prove we can fly something in an atmosphere that thin and it's already done that.

    Okay so that rescue rocket part is beyond accurate. When I was like 3 or 4 my grandfather would teach me how to fly single-rotor radio control helicopters, and it was 2007, 2008ish, we were only about a decade past bluetooth so it wasn't anything state-of-the-art. We were flying it outside one time and my uncle was over at their house (they would take care of me when my parents were at work and I would stay over on fridays) and he wanted to try flying. So my grandfather gives him the controller and my uncle raises the throttle all the way, causing it to hover around the treetops for a few seconds. Probably without thinking, he moved the right hand joystick forward and it darted into a tree, where it was stuck before blowing down in a windstorm 3 months later. This quite literally means that I might still have that helicopter if it was only under control by a 3-year-old. It was a sad day without rescue rockets.
