Seven years of work and seven months to travel in space, the US probe InSight "cocked" and shortly afterwards sent the image.
This millimeter and dangerous efficiency led to the impact of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) control center in Pasadena, California.
He directed the "confirmed landing" of the voice of the controller by his colleagues under control, joy and embrace in the celebration.
Since Artifact disembarked in Mars, for the first time since the NASA curiousness vehicle, the only one on the planet is active.
The United States has put artifacts there only to invest these missions in the 2030s with the intention of preparing for the future invasion of human explorers.
"My First Photo in March"
The positioning process was perfect: activating the parachute, spreading the legs and reducing the speed of 19.800 km / h to 8 km / h in seven minutes.
NASA "definitely touches the spacecraft surface driving algorithms" before entering the atmosphere into the atmosphere until the temperature reaches 1,500 ° C.
The probes lasted 480 million kilometers at 20,000 km / h, three to four times faster than the rifle bullet, reaching a 10 km radius of 24 km.
He sent two photographic satellites when InSight crossed Mars.
He had to listen to and study the $ 993 million probation for two years in Marsen to reveal the mysteries that he had raised billions of dollars a few years ago.
To find out more about understanding the Earth's formation later on, it is the only rocky planet in the interior of the interior.
Elizabeth Barrett, the major operator of the JPL, said that two or three months should be needed for the tools on the surface and another couple to start receiving data.
The goal is to build a three-dimensional map of a planet, so that "we understand the interior of Mars and we will know it out," said Bruce Banerdt, chief researcher at JPL.
