Six-month trip ended in space. The Insight Insight landed on Mars.
Update: The Nasafrostos made a successful landing in March.
Original text: Nasafarkost was sent to California in California and has now reached 548 million kilometers.
At 9:00 p.m., Swedish time is expected to be covered with dusty red surface. At the bottom of this article, a live trial broadcast is embedded.
If everything is expected, Insight Mars will enter the atmosphere at a speed of 19,310 kilometers at that time. The path to the ground is folding to the ground, parachute and rocket brake. Six minutes and a half later, the speed will be 8 kilometers per hour.
For 16 minutes, the dust will close before opening the circular panels.
NASA's control room workers Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Los Angeles expect landing in real time with two small satellites. Sent by Insight at the same time and Mars fled.
Workers can also get craftsmanship and surrounding images, on the Elysium Planitia meseta near Mars Equator. The landing area is located 600 kilometers away, since the Ring Nonsense has landed in 2012. Nazareno Postek was the last time it was walking the red planet.
Insight's mission is both fascinating and exciting. For 24 months, March, seismic equipment and a drill will be used to explain how the planet is generated. In the long run, researchers may have a better understanding of how part of the interior of our solar system could be to how rocky land and other rocky planets were.
"It helps us to understand how we finished here," said Bruce Banerdt, a leader of the Insight Project, in recent weeks for reporters.
Time for geological machine
While the continental plate largely destroyed the earth's origin, it was considered by Marte to eons, making the soil a geologic machine.
The main instrument is a seismometer, a seismometer, measuring "Mars earthquakes" and meteorites. The researchers expect between a dozen and 100 layers to understand the size, density and composition of the planet.
Insight is a German-made drill, drilling a five-meter drilling ground and measuring the temperature. In addition, the instrument includes data on Mars's rotation, to prove the size of the planet's core and liquid.
