From that moment on, a spacecraft continues to the Martian atmosphere to the second for the Red Planet's surface oxidation, scientists call it "a seven-minute fear".
It is difficult to get Mars out of space as difficult as sounds. Not more than half of the missions are emerging safely. It takes more than seven minutes to travel to 100 million million Earth, scientists have no control over the process. Everything you can do is schedule the spacecraft with their best technology and wait.
InSight, seven minutes from the new NASA Master Explorer Mars, starts on Monday from 3:00 pm. East Time Seismic waves are the first mission to study on another planet; In the interior of Mars, scientists are looking for tectonic activities and traces of the past on the planet.
But they must first arrive.
About 2:47. On Monday, Engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory will receive a signal indicating that InSight has entered the atmosphere in March. Spatial ships will lower the surface of the planet at 12,300 kilometers per hour; Within two minutes, the friction burns up to 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit. In another two minutes, a supersonic parasite will be opened to help slow down the spacecraft.
Thereafter, the quickest check-point test is developed: to distinguish the heat of 15 seconds. Ten feet to expand. Activate radar Jettison back apron. Fire retrorockets off. Landing area
Everyone admitted is well, 12:01 p.m. Scientists will hear a slight beep – InSight is active and a signal that works in Red Planet.
The goal is what will happen and how it has changed since it was created over 4 million years ago. The results could help solve the mystery of what was transformed into a dry and destructive world like Red Planet.
At the beginning of its history, Mars could be similar to the Earth. Magnetization of ancient rocks suggests that the Earth was similar to a magnetic field, using a copper mantle and a metal box. The area should protect the radiation planet so that it is much larger than today's existing. Likewise, the liquid allowed liquid water to swim across the surface of Mars; Satellite images determine the long lakes, deltas and canyons of carved rivers.
But the Red Planet slow-disaster has been in the last 3 million years. Dinamo was killed; faltered magnetic field; evaporate water; and more than half of the atmosphere violated the sun's winds. He invented InSight's mission to find out why.
As InSight causes its precarious decline, NASA could be able to get acquainted with the state of MarCo's satellites – a small twin experimental space called CubeSats, accompanied by InSight's Mars flight. Each one has a solar matrix, a color camera and an antenna in Martian surface to communicate on Earth.
If the satellites are successful, they can provide "a possible model of a new type of interplanetary communications relay," said Anne Marinan, an engineer at the system NASA news release.
Even without MarCo's spacecraft, NASA should know Earth's solar matrix on Monday, thanks to recordings by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Within a day, this agency will receive its first images of the spacecraft landing area, a broad, flat plain near the equator known as Elysium Planitia. That's where science begins.
Unlike Opportunity and Curiosity, Mars's rocks are looking for interesting rocks, InSight is designed to sit and listen. Using a dome-shaped sensor sensor, scientists are expected to identify small shocks around the impacts of meteorites, wind storms, and dashes associated with "dashes" from internal planetary cooling. The changes in materials that pass through the seismic wave will be distorted, perhaps to explain what happens when it comes to the rocks of liquid water or reservoirs.
InSight also has a drill bit of 16 feet, deeper than any Mars instrument. From there, Mars can take the temperature to determine how much heat it is in the body of the planet. Meanwhile, two antennae will track the location of the soil, which is how Mars worsens the sun.
InSight's ideas I do not know everything we know about Mars. He had traced the things that were happening to him, millions of years ago. The history of early history of the Earth has been lost thanks to the tectonic plate, explained Suzanne Smrekar, chief of the mission.
"Mart allows us to see the material, the structure, the chemical reactions similar to what we see in the Earth, but it is maintained," he said. "It allows us to go back in time".
