NASA is targeting a next-generation Mars helicopter to return samples from the Red Planet

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — Work is underway to design a new NASA Mars helicopter.

Thanks to the nearly 50 flights across the Jezero Crater landscape performed by the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter, a lot has been learned to help prepare a future rotorcraft for the Red Planet, and there are plenty of add-ons that will be included in the next aerial vehicle that will buzz above the surface of Mars.
