Tampa – Seven years later and a nearly seven-month trip lasted almost seven minutes, reaching NASA's Tuesday $ 993 million spacecraft Mars InSight space on Tuesday.
Mars InSight aims to listen to Teresos and Vibors, to discover the mysteries inside the Red Planet, the millions of years and, to a large extent, how other rocky planets such as Earths were shaped.
Nuclear driver NASA is trying to touch Earth's planet on the planet as Curiosity Rover arrived in 2012.
Succeedingly, with orbit and polls, more than half of Martha wanting to reach Mars.
It is the only space agency that NASA has made, and the first human exploration of the 2030s in the 2030s has been a way of preparing these robotic missions.
"Mars has never given up. Mars is difficult," said Thomas Zurbuchen, director of science at NASA, on Sunday.
The nails, fall and landing phase begin at 11:47 (time 1940 GMT / 2140 SA) at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, for the Mars InSight mission control.
A well-trained sequencer, already trained, prepared on a spacecraft, has spent several minutes "six and a half minutes of terrorism."
12,300 miles (19,800 km) faster than the bullet, the heat-shielded spacecraft finds a tough friction when it enters Mars's atmosphere.
The heat shield is about 4500 Fahrenheit (about 1,500 Celsius) at a temperature. Radio signals can be missed briefly.
The heat shield is discarded, the three landing legs open and the parachute is removed.
"We have a little escape, which I think is quite terrifying," said Tom Hoffman, director of the InSight project.
But then boosts have begun to fire, a slowdown of more than 800 kilograms (365 kilograms), at a speed of 5 mph, when the surface reaches.
A joystick that lurks on the ground does not exist in this spacecraft, and if nothing is involved, Hoffman confused his emotions.
"I am very comfortable and very nervous at the same time," he said.
"We have done everything we can to think we need to be successful, but you never know what will happen."
Hoffman said, "he was not great," he slept, although his sisters were born for two and a half years.
When the first signal arrives at the GMT in 2001, the earthquake has dropped completely and steadily, "I am breaking off every four years of my interior," he said.
Zurbuchen described InSight as the "only" tool through European-assisted space agencies.
The French Center for National Space Studies (CNES) Internal Structure (SES) made a seismic tool, a key element of false sensors.
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) provided a self-hammering mole that came in before the burrow on the surface of 16 meters (five meters) – more than any instrument – to measure the heat flow.
The Spanish Astrobiology Center performed space wind sensors.
The major contributions to the project were the Polish Academy of Science and Astronomy Research Center, the Swiss Technology Institute and the Imperial College of the United Kingdom, London and Oxford.
Together, these instruments will explore geological processes, said Bruce Banerdt, chief researcher at InSight Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
For shaking Marsen, quakes or meteorites, or volcanic activity, scientists can learn more about the interior and explain how planet-generated.
The goal is to map three-dimensional Marsen internally ", so we understand Mars inside and out of Mars," said Banerdt.
NASA conducted a final course on Sunday.
All the pre-programmed landing segments can be made by NASA scientists to cross their fingers and get hope.
The coverage of the NASA website will begin at 11:00 p.m. (1900 GMT / 2100 SA time).
