Each detector that NASA sends to the planet's cruise planet has a large-scale replica, ground engineers and scientists to plan missions on earth and experiment with Marsen. InSight Detector is no exception. It's a replica full size in the JPL laboratory in Pasadena (California) and simulates Martian surface and environment on the ground.
JPL engineers designed Martian Rock gardens based on InSight's images. The group put a broken garnet bed to simulate Mars's sand. The solvent layer in a single frame set by the group is 4 inches thick. Add the soil to the InSight surface of the laboratory to simulate the height and slope, in the real Mars environment. In order to be a correct landscape, the AR team was responsible for the introduction of a digital model of the land model in the laboratory. This allows more soil to be left in the ground, where the replica is located as close as possible.
It takes about four hours to play the JPL team to play the landing area, if it is larger than any stone or rock. Wooden blocks are used to mark the perimeter of the seismometer and the heat flow test tool. To ensure internships, the accuracy cameras are used to measure all the functions that must be repeated in the group. As landing repeats as well as possible, engineers allow the ground to launch the instrument to collect Marsen data. Since the InSight detector is rock-free and dry in Mars, it's easier to replicate Mars's surface than expected.
