As the newest living in Marsen, Planet Earth works in three territories, and at least generates two generations with the scientific Martian brigade.
In NASA's InSight spacecraft, Wednesday, less than 400 kilometers (less than 640 kilometers), Curiosity approached the only other robot of Mars.
San Francisco and Pasadena, California, from the Missions Control Mission to Mars.
InSight – A Successful Territory in the Eighth Martian – Two years after the arrival of corruption and rumors, from U.S., Europe and China.
The giant Mars 2020 of NASA 2020 will hunt for the life of ancient microbial rocks and keep them in a safe place around Earth around the 2030s. Jezero directs a delta of the river Crater.

European European ExoMars will also erode past life, to drill a few fossil chemicals in meters. The nuclear space that took part in the ExoMars mission was crashed in the red planet in 2016.
China's 2020 Mars will also have an orbit and landing. The United Arab Emirates, meanwhile, wants to send its first spacecraft to Mars by 2020; The orbit is called Hope or Amal Arabic.
It seems to our neighbors that Mars has a siren song for Earthlings, even though NASA returns instantly to our moon.
Three days later, InSight landed NASA's new commercial lunar delivery program. The space agency has chosen nine United States companies to compete for science and technology experiments to achieve the surface of the moon. The first edition could be the next year.
NASA wants to see what Marsen looks like before trying out.
"The moon is currently about commercial space," said Thomas Zurbuch, director of NASA's science mission office, head of the lunar load project.
TIPS: InSight testing successfully in Mars
At the same time, it is pushing an advanced orbit alongside the NASA astronauts in the direction of the Trump Administration. It could be a lunar landing point, according to Jim Bridenstine, NASA Administrator, and provide a critical experience near home before launching a two to three year mission.
Bridenstine Marsen travels for the weekends in the mid 2030s, which is a very "very aggressive" goal.
"It's a reality, yes, your nation is now very committed to reaching Marte," said Bridenstine's continued contact with InSight "as a tool to get the moon as soon as possible."
After Earth's "Earth Boots" after Mars, Zurbuchen said.
Mars makes it so compelling, and robot, and finally, for human exploration, is easy access, said InSight's senior scientist, Bruce Banerdt at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. A two-way trip is six months long, every two years the planet's closest. The conditions are hard but quite welcoming. "Being in Antarctica without any snow," said Banerdt.
Above all, Mars may be one of the most serious places to find outside life, according to Banerdt.
Even if Jupiter's Europe moon can survive or survive, it would be much longer, which is why it would be much more difficult for Banerdt to say that it is difficult to achieve this mission as soon as possible.

The ten years of life in Europe are coming, said Banerdt, and would be running every two years as a robot sniffers. Each of them made five Mars missions in a single Europe, he said.
Mars currently has two spacecraft spaces in work: InSight and curiosity and six satellites to work in the United States, Europe and India. The earthquake in the United States is the only country in which it is successfully launched and launched. The red surface over 2012 has been a success. The older NASA Opportunity rover worked until June when storms unleash a global storm.
In search of geologic and non-biological secrets in March, InSight offers fascinating images of a position that "never saw humans," says Michael Watkins, JPL Director. These pictures remind us of such science, "we must be courageous and we must be an explorer."
The NASA 2020 Mars Launch Window opens on January 17. Touchdown on February 18, 2021.
"You've been invited again," said Watkins on the day of landing on Monday's retirees.
