On Monday, NASA retreats for the landing on Mars, which was the first on Monday to investigate the earthquakes and cost $ 993 million to investigate the earthquakes.
The unmanned spacecraft was launched about seven months ago and has traveled 482 million kilometers. Part of his mission is to try to send some of the things that NASA hopes to achieve in 2030 to the red planet in 2030.
The landing on Mars was the first year since NASA's Curiosity explorer surfaced and analyzed the rocks for life signs that could now survive on the planet next to the Earth.
InSight should evade the difficult entry into the red planet's atmosphere, progress at a speed of 19,800 miles per hour, and rapidly decline only eight miles per hour.
Entrance, landing and landing stage starts at 7: 47 on Monday. Half is joking, NASA means six and a half minutes of terror.
From the 43 missions made to Mars, only 18 reached the red planet, a success rate of about 40% and all came from the US. N It's hard to go to Mars,; said Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA's Director of Scientific Affairs.
The exciting part is that we are building on this planet with the success of the best team that has come together with the NASA team's contractors and collaborators.
The InSight name is derived from internal discovery using seismic surveys, geodesy and heat transport. The spacecraft stops at about one meter and extends to almost six meters after the solar panels have been installed.
With full load fuel, InSight weighs more than 360 kg, which is almost the same as a Harley Davidson motorcycle. The central instrument is an earthquake detected sismometer made by the French Space Agency (CNES). CNES chairman Jean-Yves Le Gall, said it was the only duty designed around a foreign production vehicle.
