Speaking at the Californian control center: "InSight" Robots landed on Mars on Wednesday in Europe. Scientists expect a 650 million-euro project in 485 million kilometers in the future mission of the planet's court.
NASA robot "InSight" has successfully landed in Marsen. After a trip of about 485 million kilometers, the earthquake that began in May of the "InSight" was launched at the Elysium Plane in the north of the Mars equator on Monday on the red planet.
"Landing Confirmed" Pasadena, the speaker at the California control centers heard, and all NASA scientists, dressed in dark red shirts, applauded, jokes, hugs and joyful tricks.
He congratulated the United States Vice President on the phone
"What is a wonderful day for NASA?" United States Space Agency Jim Bridenstine said at the control center. "It was so intense that you can feel emotions". US Vice President Mike Pence congratulated him on the phone. A short message from Twitter, Pence praised it as "stunning landmark" soon after.
In the meantime, the robot has already sent the first photo, showing some of the surface of the planet and the horizons, and a bit of dust on the lens. Using "InSight" ("Using Seismic Analysis, Geodesy and Heavy Transport") will emerge in the next few days.
In a very complex maneuver, after entering the Martian atmosphere, the robot missiles missiles and parachute slammed down. "The Martian atmosphere reached a speed of 19,800 kilometers per hour and took the whole sequence to six minutes and a half," said Tom Hoffman, NASA Director. "In a short period of time, InSight had to do it with its own dozens of errors, and that seems to have happened."
The robot should provide information on the structure of the planet
360 kilograms of robots can not roll, but it remains in one place. The landing area is largely flat and rocky and rocky. Previous Mars missions have not yet explored from the earth.
With several scientific tools, robots will continue to investigate Mars and, above all, learn more about planetary structure and surface dynamics. As far as security is concerned, it is necessary to look for suitable tools located in the immediate vicinity. The robot's arms must take a perfect position.
A device developed in Germany, a type of Mars mole, is supposed to be drilled on the ground. The official name HP3 ("Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package") was developed by the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
40 centimeters long and sharp devices fit into a depth of five meters and measure the heat flow. "Landing was exciting, but I am currently drilling forward," said Nasa researcher Bruce Banerdt. 650 million Euros are costly in "InSight" -Message is designed for two years.
Mars plantations are very difficult
The 2012 latest NASA succeeded in succeeding in the "Burbuiltness" of Mars. With "InSight", Nasa successfully brought a robot to the eighth Marsi period. The land of the red planet is becoming very difficult – only 40% of all of the world's marches were successful.
In 2016, for example, the European Space Agency's "Schiaparelli" probation failed due to a computer error in the landing view.
