About 7 months and 458 million kilometers later came InSight Mars & this is the first photo

According to NASA, Mars received the new robotic InSight. His internal research tool for seismic research landed successfully on the Red Planet after traveling about seven months and 458 million kilometers to the Earth.

InSight's two-year mission is to study the deep interior of Mars.

InSight was launched from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on 5 May and landed on Monday, next to the Mars equator on the west of a smooth lava width called the Elysium Planitia.

"We have successfully entered Mars for the eighth time in the history of mankind," said Jim Bridenstine, director of NASA. Nasa said, "InSight will work in Mars and will teach us valuable science as we prepare to send astronauts to the Moon and then to Mars."

InSight, Martian on the surface for a year, will also work on March 24, 2020 until 40 Martian days or in the sun.
