CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla – As Mars' newest residence takes place, Planet Earth works in at least two terrains and at least two orbits to join the scientific Martian brigade.
On Monday, NASA's InSight spacecraft touched more than 400 miles (640 kilometers) from the Curiosity, the only other running robot on Mars, on a wide range of red equatorial plains.
This is home to San Francisco to Pasadena, Mission Control in California.
InSight – the eighth successful Martian descent – had to complete two-year digging and earthquake tracing with time rovers from the US, Europe and China.
NASA's Mars 2020 will be hunted from rocks that can keep evidence of old microbial life and store them in a safe place to return to Earth in the early 2030s. The Jezero Crater once targeted the wet river delta.
The Euro-Russian ExoMar will also smelt past life by drilling down several meters (meters) for chemical fossils. In 2016 a spacecraft, which is part of an ExoMars mission, collided on the red planet.
China Mars 2020 will have both an orbiter and land. Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates aims to send the first spacecraft to Mars in 2020; The orbit is called Hope or Amal in Arabic.
Apparently, our neighbor Mars holds a siren song for the Earthlings, and NASA turns his attention to our moon.
Just three days after the launch of InSight, NASA announced a new commercial month delivery program. The space agency competed to acquire nine hundred US companies on the moon surface for science and technology experiments. The first launch could be next year.
NASA wants to see how it is before trying something similar on Mars.
Et Where the moon is now according to the commercial location,, said Thomas Zurbuchen, head of the science mission at NASA.
At the same time, NASA is pushing the astronauts in the direction of the Trump administration for an orbit near the moon. According to Jim Bridenstine, NASA Manager will serve as a starting point for lunar landings, and will offer people a critical experience close to their home before starting their two to three year Mars mission.
For astronauts in the mid-2030s, Bridenstine foresees Mars as a as very aggressive; target.
Çok The fact is, your nation is very determined to go to Mars right now, Br said Bridenstine. Following this respect of InSight, bir the moon is used as a tool to reach a goal as fast as possible, In he said.
Zurbuchen said that Mars was an obvious place after months for "boots on the ground".
Bruce Banerdt, a leading scientist in InSight, said in a statement from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory that it's relatively easy access to robotics and, eventually, human discovery – making Mars so compelling. One-way travel time is six months every two years when planets are closest. The conditions were heavy, but relatively welcoming. "It's like being unprofitable in Antarctica," Banerdt said.
Moreover, according to Banerdt, Mars can be one of the most likely places to find life outside the world.
Jupiter's Europe may have continued its life, but it may take longer, and it takes more time to say that Banerdt recently dreamed of taking on such a mission.
Banerdt said that every two years, it could be possible to launch a robotic sniffers in Europe, but every ten years it could be a struggle for survival in Europe. He noted that this was the five Mars missions for each Europe.
Mars currently has two functioning spaceships on the surface – InSight and Curiosity – and six satellites in working order from the US, Europe and India. The US is the only country in Mars that successfully transports and operates a spacecraft. Curiosity has been circulating the red surface since 2012. NASA's earlier Opportunity rover was operating until June when a global duststorm was inactive.
In the pursuit of geological but biological secrets in the depths of Mars, InSight gives amazing pictures of a location like görül a person who has never been seen before, bulunan explains Michael Watkins, director of JPL. These photos remind us that in order to do something like this we have to be brave and be an explorer.
NASA's Mars 2020 opening window opens July 17th of that year. Touchdown will be 18 February 2021.
. You're invited, Wat said Watkins, to the gloomy ups and downs of Monday.
