NASA's InSight has "made a home call" with Mars successfully taking over the surface of the planet.
The NASA probes sent two new photos of their new home, after a successful touchdown of around 3 p.m. ET on Monday.
"My first photo # Mars's" space agency tweeted. "My lens cover is not yet extinct, but I have had to show the first look at my home".

After a few hours of landing, the craftsman took a second photograph, clearly emerging from the red planet.
"Here is a quiet beauty, looking forward to exploring my home," NASA said.
InSight, an international $ 1 million project, a German mechanical mole, sheds a five-meter hole to measure the heat of Mars. The Earth also has a seismometer, to measure quake, in a geologically quieter neighbor. Another experiment will calculate Mars & # 39; wobble to make the makeup of the planet's core appear.
Rock Day Green Day revealed a connection to the NASA and Mars project, from the "Green Day since 1986" to a chip installed on the ground.
"Marte officially running" tweeted the group.
