NASA's non-driver shark sensor, InSight, has landed a small angle of Red Planets, and experts expect it will work as a space shipment forecast, the US space agency said Friday.
It reached $ 993 million on Monday, a plain called Elysium Planitia, for a two-year mission.
"A somewhat bent (about 4 degrees) dusty, shallow-bottomed impact on the vehicle is known as a crater," NASA said in a statement.
InSight was designed to operate at a surface that is more than 15 degrees.
For this reason, experts have the hope that the two main tools are: an earthquake sensor and a hot mole under surface measurements for automobiles.
"We could not be happier," said InSight project manager Tom Hoffman at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
"There is no landing paddle or track in Marsen, so a large forest in that area, basically without much rock, to make tool implementation easier and to boost our mole, it starts burrowing."
The first images on the ground show a few rocks nearby; Good news, as they are close to the rocky area, would be a trickle against solar arrays and tools.
The next few days, better images are expected, when InSight covers two cameras dust.
"We are looking for high definition images to confirm this preliminary assessment," said Bruce Banerdt, NASA's InSight chief investigator.
"Some of these images, which reduce the resolution powder, even if they are inaccurate, seem to include two underlying instrument implementations and a heat flow temperature experiment."
