Washington, Nov. 25 (EUROPA PRESS) .- The March 7 surface drop of November 26 will be seven minutes for NASA's InSight mission seven months to the Red Plan.
The InSight Martian reaches the upper reaches of 19,800 kilometers and reduces the speed of 8 km per hour, when it touches the Martian soil before three legs. It must happen in seven minutes of little difficulty.
Lockheed Martin, the best contractor in InSight mission construction, explains the features and complexity of Mars's decline tracking for space engineers.
Due to the speed and friction of the Martian atmosphere, a thermal InSight will have a temperature of 1,500 degrees. Just three minutes before the perfect plain of Elysium Planitia, the paragliders will open, after which the thermal shield will disappear and the new Husband Laboratory will open three legs. At least one minute before touching the ground, retro-rockets will begin to slow down on landing at 19.54 GMT.
NASA at 8:00 p.m. IsSight directs to Earth to beep & # 39; it calculates a signal, that everything goes well and works on Mars's surface. It is not before 20.04, and maybe the next day, InSight will get the first image from Mars. Within 20,35 years, the Mars Odyssey orbiter solar panels of the NASA would have to be deployed.
The mission of this ship is not to find traces of ancient moisture or biology, or rather as movements such as vehicles, but the analysis of the interior of the Earth has been solved.
"The signing of planetary formation processes can only be detected and investigated under the surface of the evidence. InSight's task is to analyze the internal depth of Mars, taking on the vital signs of the planet: its pulse, temperature and reflexes," Bruce Banerdt, chief researcher at InSight at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory In a statement he explains.
By taking final signals, the InSight scientific team will remember the moment of the rocky solar system's rocks.
