Washington, Berlin, Graz – The vision of the inner planet of the Mars planet aims to achieve "InSight" for the NASA mission. The province's probe will remain on the planet on Monday morning and will work as a geophysical observatory over the next few months. Participates in the evaluation of data from the Austrian Research Institute of Sciences (IMF).
NASA's mission to explore "InSight" (Seismic Research, Geodesy and Heat Exchanging) at the bottom of the planet. If everything is done, the earthquake that began in May will take place north of Elysium Planitia in the north of Ecuador, at 9.00, after a 485 million-mile route. He will carry out research on the geophysical framework of the frame for two years. Researchers are hoping to draw conclusions from the beginning of the history of the body's corpse and finally create more than four million years of land.
They are scientific researchers who use researchers within March. The 2012 latest NASA succeeded in succeeding in the "Burbuiltness" of Mars. Plantations on the planet Earth are becoming very difficult – only 40% of those who were deployed worldwide were deployed by NASA.
It is necessary to analyze the construction of the planet
"InSight" weighs 360 kilograms and has made a seven-month trip to Earth's planetary land, 10,000 kilometers per hour. After entering the Martian atmosphere, the flying objects will descend with the help of brake missiles and parachute. Researchers control a robot in a California control center in Pasadena.
Combined with specialized tools, InSight can listen to your skin deeply. Among other things, the "pulse rate" (seismic), "fever curve" (planet's heat flow) and planetary reflexes (flow limits) will be analyzed by the UAW Space Research Institute Günther Karglek. Austrian researchers also take part in the mission: Graz's IMF evaluates part of the scientific data collected in the mission.
First of all, it must be done with a special nail mechanism that is required to check "Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package" (HP3). With his help you will dive into the soil in the sea. Then, in December, MFI experts will be very interesting: they will receive effects on the mechanical properties of the Martian surface, depending on the data recorded by the device.
"We will reach at least three meters, the bottom depth would be five meters," said Kargl APA. To achieve this depth, around 10,000 are needed. It will take about two months, "he said. The contribution of the FMI is based on the study of the mechanical properties of soil, with the introduction of the HP3 molar penetration into the soil in Marte, and technically contributed to the IWF at the Institute of Mechanics of Land and Foundation of the Graz Technology University and the Austrian Research Promotion Agency FFG financed it.
In addition, the surface manipulations, together with the arm of the tool expansion, have been able to determine more mechanical parameters of soil regulation, with independent research, called the IMF.
After the landing signal, "I've done it" is sent
Currently, about 146 million miles from Mars Earth, radio signals require up to eight minutes for stations. In "InSight", two small satellites were sent for the first time to fly in the provincial probe and, in a way, "InSight & # 39; Entering the atmosphere and plunging the leg-free sequence into the next line, "says Kargle. As soon as he landed safely on the ground, he sends the signal "I made".
The provincial probe can not communicate the earth directly, the orbital space probes must jump as an exit station. However, due to web geometry, there may be delays in the transfer. During the run-up, the space sinks "Mars Renaissance" and "2001 Mars Orbiter" are expected to be used. (APA / DPA)
