The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory controllers began to step up and shout their hands as they passed in La Paz, California, when they laughed and laughed. "Get it confirmed!" He announced the driver.
A photo from the top of the surface was littered with garbage beds but showed a flat surface, even if it was not a rock, what the scientists expected.
The next hours and days will be better images.
After losing $ 1,000 million in InSight Surface Weight to Three Legs, with the help of parachute and braking engines, the space agency said.
Updates came through radio signals for more than eight minutes to cross the distance between Mars and Earth's nearly 160 million kilometers (100 million miles).
NASA commenced the ninth attempt in the Viking test of 1976.
All previous US landings, but one, were successful.
The final NASA NASA landing was in 2012 with the Curiosity test.
In the US museums, planetarium, and libraries, and in the Times Square in New York, the activities of the NASA laboratory control room appeared.
The downturn plunged the probes at a distance of 19,800 kilometers per hour (12,300 kilometers per hour) in just six minutes in zero, while Martian climbed and climbed to the surface.
"Mars landing is one of the hardest crashing jobs in the planet's exploration," said InSight, chief scientist Bruce Banerdt.
"Something so difficult, so dangerous, there is always an uncomfortable opportunity to be something wrong." Mars has been the cemetery of many space missions.
Up to now, Mars's success rate has risen by 40%, such as flight analysis, orbital flights, and the United States of America, Russia and other countries have tried since 1960.
However, the United States has had a lot of success in the last decade of the last seventeen years, and the only mistake is an enviable record.
No other country has mounted and operated nuclear space on depleted skin.
InSight directed the plain Eliseo, next to Martian's equator.
The 800-meter stabilization test will use a steel wire of 1.8 meters (6 ft) for mechanical surfaces and a seismometer.
The drill examines deeply 5 meters (16 feet) deep to measure the internal heat of the planet, and the seismometer will be detected by earthquakes.
No probes pierced more than a few centimeters in Marsen and do not practice the seismometer on the planet.
Germany is in charge of InSight Borer while France manages the seismometer.
Looking at the interior of the Martian, scientists hope that the rocks of our solar system on the solar system have created up to 4,500 million years ago and why they are so different.
Cold and dry Mars, Venus and Mercury are very hot and it's feasible to promote Earth's life.
However, InSight can not detect life. This will continue with future probes, such as NASA's 2020 Mars mission, which includes rocks that will take over the Earth to analyze evidence of ancient life.
