NASA's NASA spacecraft was deployed below Mars, on a six-month, 482-million-month-long trip, six months after its rolling-out atmosphere.
At NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the controllers of Pasadena (California) departed from the seats and cries, applause, and laughter fell as news, when the three legs of InSight touched the red planet.
"Flawless," said the chief engineer of JPL, Rob Manning.
"This is to wait and imagine our hope," he said. "Sometimes things are in your favor".
A pair of mini satellite at the end of InSight since their May liftoff provided almost real-time Spanish ships with supersonic descent reddish skies. The satellite also pulled back on the surface fast photo.
The image scanned the camera's cover with detection dashes. But the look of the eye was shown to a flat and sandy surface, because only a few stones were scientists. The photo will be much better during hours and days.
"What a relief," Manning said. "This is really fantastic." He added: "This is never old."
The InSight space ship's surface reached 19,800 km / h after being flat in six minutes to stop parachute and braking machines. Landing confirmed the radio signal for more than eight minutes to reach almost 160 million miles of Mars and Earth.
NASA's ninth attempt to bury Marsen among the Viking circuits in 1976. All previous U.S. All touchdowns were successful.
NASA landed on Mars in 2012 with a curious vehicle.
During North America, direct visits were made to museums, planetarium and libraries, as well as Times Square in New York.
"Mars landing is one of the few things that people should do in exploration of the planet," said Bruce Banerdt InSight's senior scientist. "It's a difficult thing, it's a dangerous thing, something can always go wrong."
Mars has been with many space missions. So far, the highest success rate on the planet has been only 40 percent, since the 1960s, flying from the United States, Russia and other countries, avoiding orbital flight and landing.
However, U.S. has had success in the seventy-two Mars Mars over the past four decades, but InSight has not been told, it has failed.
Another country does not set nuclear space and exploit it with dusty debris.
InSight was filming Elysium Planitia, the hope of the InSight team near the Martian Equator, which is as flat as the Kansas car park with a few rocks.
This is not the Rocket Expedition. Instead, a stable plot of 360 kg will be used with a robotic arm of 1.8 meters for a mechanical mole and a seismometer on the ground.
Mole self-hammering will burrow down five meters to measure the interior heat of the planet, while listening to possible seismometer quakes.
But in those places, these instruments will take a few months to achieve them, NASA scientists must first assess the health of the spacecraft and the stranded area.
Nothing happened before Mars's planet nearly 160 million kilometers away.
The ground does not drill more deeply than the probes, and there is no seismometer running.
When analyzing Mars, scientists expect our system to understand four million Star Planet Earthquakes four million years ago and why they were so different: Cold and dry Mars, hot Venus and Mercury, and enjoyable Earth.
"We're trying to get back to the season of the first phase of the planet," Baner said. "The initials of these processes are not Earth here".
InSight did not have the ability to detect survivors. That will remain for the rover of the future. NASA's Mars 2020 mission, for example, will comprise the roots that will bring Earth and explore the evidence of ancient life.
