After the InSight spacecraft removed the lens cap from its cameras and began to capture the clearest images of the Red Planet's surface, NASA released amazing new photographs of Mars.
The space agency shared a series of high-resolution photos of rocky Martian land.
What could be seen in the snapshots was two small chips bearing the names of more than 2 million people on the planet.
Lander will soon start taking pictures in front of the surface to give an idea of where to start drilling for scientists.
. We are MARS 'trail, you guys,, InSight's Twitter account was released today. "You are all honorable Martians."
The breathtaking quality of the latest InSider images is a huge improvement from the first images hidden by dust and protective covers.
Bruce Bender, the chief researcher at the Mission's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said, Laboratu Today we can see the first appearance of our workplace.
"Early next week, we'll see in more detail and create a complete mosaic."
The ship's robotic arm extends to about six meters long and is used to move science instruments around.
The first images emerged after the scientists stood in a white-necked pose during the risky “seven-minute terror beyaz of the probe on the Red Planet.
By studying and mapping the interior of Mars, scientists are hoping to see why the rocky planets in our solar system are so different and why the Earth has become a paradise for life.
As the world spins 301 million miles (548 million km), the robot's nearly seven-month voyage ended with a dramatic fall when it reached the Red Planet on Monday at 7.50.
Nasa's mission control in California exploded happily after InSight's safe access.
The last seven minutes, especially when the craft is moving slowly in the fine Mars atmosphere, allowing very little friction when stretching.
Project manager Tom Hoffman says the spacecraft has landed near the bullseye, but Nasa has not yet had the final calculations.
He said the first photo was difficult to tell if there were any slopes nearby, but he hoped he had a flat, smooth "parking spot".
Due to the distance between the Earth and Mars, it took eight minutes for the approval of a pair of small satellites separated from InSight.
The two satellites not only conveyed the good news in real time, but also returned the first snapshot of Mars, just four minutes after the landing of InSight.
The picture was stained with dirt because the dust cover was still on the land camera, but the terrain around the spacecraft looked smooth and sandy with only one large piece of rock – which seemed to be hoped by scientists.
Better photos are expected in the days after the dust caps are off.
Rob Manning, chief engineer of Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, described the successful landing as ion flawless N. This is what we really hope and dream in the eyes of our minds. Sometimes things work in your favor. "
Nasa – in fact, the eighth successive landing on Mars since the 1976 Viking probes of mankind, and the first in six years.
In the Nasa stage of curiosity in 2012, there is still movement on Mars.
In What a great day for our country, ilk said manager Jim Bridenstine, who led the first landing of the Red Planet as the Space Planet's boss.
Seven hours after contact, the agency reported that InSight's vital solar panels were turned on and were recharging their batteries.
Over the next few "left" or Martian days, 24 hours a day, 39 minutes, flight controllers will also assess the health of InSight 's all – important robot arm and its science tools.
The three-space-building seismometer instrument in the United Kingdom is on the spaceship, which is part of the British Space Agency's efforts of £ 4 million to measure "marsquakes" on the planet.
Sue Horne, head of space exploration in the US Space Agency, said: & The InSight spacecraft's safe landing on Mars is a great news.
Endişe UK scientists and engineers involved in this mission have devoted their lives to building the seismometer on the ship for several years, and landing is always an alarming time.
"We are now looking forward to the distribution of instruments and data that will begin to arrive in the new year to improve our understanding of how the device can be installed."
The robot will be the first probe focusing on understanding Mars's interior from its essence to its shell.
By measuring the temperature of the planet at a distance of five meters from a second instrument, a third experiment will determine how the Mars extends over its axis.
InSight's 77-mile descent into the surface slowed down by atmospheric friction, a giant parachute and retro rockets. When it finally landed after 6-1 / 2 minutes, it was only moving 5 miles (8 kmh).
The stationary probe, launched in California in May, paused for 16 minutes to allow the dust to settle around the landing site before the disc-shaped solar power arrays were restored.
Its location on the Elysium Planitia region to the north of the Equator is defined as the ideal location for its smooth and uneven surfaces.
NASA's latest spacecraft sent to the Red Planet, the automobile-sized Mars explorer, weighs about 373 miles (600 km) from the 2012 landing point of Curiosity.
The smaller, 880-pound (360 kg) InSight – name, seismic research, geodesy and heat transfer using the 21 – short marches of the 1960s – including the Mariner flying missions – marks the Marchian discoveries launched by the US. Around two dozen other Mars missions were sent from other nationalities.
This two-year, £ 633 million mission aims to shed a new light on how the Red Planet came into being and mapping its deep structure, its essence, its shell and its mantle.
To achieve this, the probe is equipped with powerful sensors and equipment to help collect data.
Solar panels are the size of the ping-pong tables and a five-legged robot arm that grips the fingers.

InSight also has a thermometer, nicknamed "Mole", which goes down 16ft below the surface of Mars to take underground temperature measurements.
The Lander is also equipped with wind and heat sensors that help operate thermal and wind shields – protecting against damage.
Only 40 percent of the tasks on the planet were successful, and they were all led by the United States.
