A NASA spacecraft took a six-month trip on a weekend, on Monday, on its last-week dimension, scientists and engineers would have a very precise precision on the soft red snow.
InSight Lander opted for touching overnight, including $ 1 million in international efforts.
InSight had a dangerous Mars casualty after 300 million kilometers (482 million kilometers), stomach windows and nerves spread out. Although proactive, NASA managed to land Mars in the last six years.
Robotic geologists are designed to explore the mysteries of Mars – they need a speed of 12,300 km / h (19,800 km / h) in zero minutes, when the air goes through the atmosphere of Martian, it reveals a parachute, it drops the drop-off motors and, fortunately, The three legs of the land.
"Mars landing is one of the only works to be made by the planet's exploration," said InSight's senior scientist, Bruce Banerdt. "It's a difficult thing, it's a dangerous thing, something can always go wrong."
Mars's success rate is 40 percent, for flights, orbital flights and the United States, Russia and other countries that had to go back in every flight of the 60s.
But the United States achieved a succession of seventeen successes in Mars on four successful landings. Only one failed touch, the record is enviable. Another country does not set nuclear space and exploit it with dusty debris.
InSight's NASA gained its eighth victory.
He is filming Elysium Planitia, the hope of the InSight team near the Martian Equator, as Kansas's flat parking lot, if it were not enough, rocks. This is not the Rocket Expedition. Instead, it will be stable at 600 kilos (800 kilograms), from 6 meters (1.8 meters) from arm rocks, to a mechanical mole and a seismometer on the ground.
The auto-mechanic snack will reduce the underground heat of the planet at a height of 16 meters (5 meters), although it is possible to hear a high-tech seismometer that is possible to hear the marshmallows. Nothing happened before the nearest neighborhood in the neighborhood, nearly 100 million kilometers (160 million kilometers) away.
No experiment ever moved in the cellphone from the core to the real Martian surface. The ground does not drill more deeply than the probes, and there is no seismometer running.
If Mars is to explore the deepest and darkest interior in its first days, scientists are looking to create 3D images, the four starred solar system of our planet created 4.5 million years ago and why they were so different. So it is one of the great questions that the Earth has given life fast.
Mars had many rivers and lakes; Deltas and lakebeds are now dry and cold on the planet. Venus is a furnace because it is an atmosphere that is thick and hot. Mercury, the closest to the sun, has a positively oval surface.
The knowledge of the Planet in InSight's two-year operation can also be released to our outsourced monitors from our solar system, according to Banerdt. Martyr discoveries could explain the types of conditions in these exposures and "how they fit in the story we are trying to imagine that make up the planet."
As PlanetSoft focuses on building blocks, InSight does not have the ability to detect life. That will remain for the rover of the future. NASA's Mars 2020 mission, for example, will include rocks for the return of evidence of ancient life.
In fact, since the last march of the NASA since it was grounded – November 2012, not only Mars mania space and science communities, but also everyday people.
The parties look to the coast, museums, planetarium and libraries, as well as in France, where the InSighten seismometer was designed and built. New York Times Square giant NASDAQ screen broadcasts NASA television one hour before InSight scheduled 3 p.m. Touch to touch; He will be held at the National and Air Museum at the Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia, and the Denver Nature and Science Museum. InSight was built by Lockheed Martin near Denver.
But the real action, at least in the Earth, opens in NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, the headquarters of InSight Flight Control Group. NASA offers a 360-degree special line of transmission within the control center.
Tactile confirmation may take minutes or hours. At least, there is an eight-minute communication sample between Mars and Earth.
Since a couple of high-speed satellite satellites have come to an end in InSight since May, radio signals will be traced to the Earth, with a delay of nine minutes. Experimental CubeSats will go through the red planet and will not stop without it. The InSight players could travel directly to West Virginia and German radio telescopes. NASA's Mars Orbiters will hear it longer.
The project's director Tom Hoffman said Sunday, trying his best to stay quietly outside for hours to tick down. After leaving InSight's home on the Martian surface, his youngest three-year-old boy was expected to have dinner at Thanksgiving dinner, as soon as he cried and cried.
"Just who is sitting next to me to inform anyone … I must release my 4-year-old year, so be careful," he said.
The landing on Mars ends with 6 minutes of 6 months
