Cape Canaveral – Designed to launch a spacecraft NASA on Mars on Monday, after its perilous and supersonic red skies, a suspicious pendant waited for scientists to reach 100 million miles of space.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena (California) aircraft controllers, chairs, screaming, dancing and embrace were released, because InSight reached Marsen, a cemetery for many previous missions.

"Touchdown confirmed!" Before calling a flight controller at 3pm EST, the immediate control room that caught the anxiety dispelling immediately decreased by six minutes.

Due to the distance between Earth and Mars, it took eight minutes to retrieve the output, small satellites were at the end

The two satellites did not transmit real news in real-time, they sent InSight to Mars's first photo after 4 ½ minutes after the earth.

The image was ripped off with dust, the dust cover still was on the crust's camera, but the spacecraft's lands were smooth and sandy, with a remarkable stone, expected by scientists. Better pictures are expected on scheduled days when dust is covered.

NASA, in fact, in the case of humanity, was launching the eighth best-known attraction, the Viking Pros of 1976, and six years earlier. NASA's curiosities, which arrived in 2012, continues in March.

"Flawless," said the chief engineer of JPL, Rob Manning. "This is to wait and imagine our hope," he added. "Sometimes things are in your favor".

NASA's Administration Jim Bridenstine said that his first landing Mars was head of the space agency, "What a wonderful day in our country."

InSight, in a million million international projects, a German mechanical mole will drop 16 meters (5 meters) down to measure the heat of Mars. The Earth also has a seismometer, to measure quake, in a geologically quieter neighbor. Another experiment will calculate Mars & # 39; wobble to make the makeup of the planet's core appear.

"In the coming months and years, history books will be explored again in Mars," said JPL director Michael Watkins.

After seven hours of touchdown, NASA announced that InSight's solar panels were opened and charging batteries.

The next "sols" or Martian days 24 hours, 39 minutes and minutes – all inSight robot controllers in flight control will also evaluate the health of the arm and its science tools.

Many nuclear spaces deployed in the United States, Russia and other countries have been lost or destroyed over the years, with a 40 percent success rate, not counting InSight.

NASA had a long and straightforward approach at that time, when paragliding and braking engines began to speed InSight's speed at 12.3 mph (19,800 km / h) when it crossed the Martian atmosphere, at 114 km (77 km) and 5 mph (8 km / h) in Touchdown. It was risky to burn or bounce in the atmosphere in space.

The three-legged InSight Elysium Planitia was located on the west, NASA invented the plain. The director of Tom Hoffman said the spacecraft was approaching the bull, but NASA did not make the final calculations.

He told me it was difficult to say that there was any nearby slope in the first photo, but when he appeared he got a "parking lot".

Museums, planets and libraries of the United States, for audiences, to see events that are open in JPL. NASA television coverage also appeared on the big screen in Times Square in New York, when people covered umbrellas in the rain.

InSight is a stable, stable, 800-kilogram (360 kilogram) stack for the next two years. It's been a few months before the consolidation and consolidation of the instruments, and according to Bruce Banerdt scientist, he does not expect the stream of experimental data until next spring.

"It'll be awesome. I can not wait to see marsquakes," said Hoffman.

The well-preserved interior of Mars, 5 million years ago, looks like Earth's appearance, according to Banerdt. While the earth is seismically active, when Mars decided to "rest in his laurels", he said.

Analyzing Mart's interior surveys and maps, scientists expect why the rocks in the solar system on our solar system were so different and why it became a shelter for Earth living.

However, there are no inSight boat detectors. NASA's next mission, the Mars 2020 coach, will be based on rocks that may prove to be an ancient lifestyle.

The Mars's past is a wet and water-filled life that asks NASA to continue driving the fourth rock of the sun.
