#photo | InSight Probe successfully set down on the surface of Mars

This photo was made by the InSight probe after successful landing on the surface of Mars. The mission statements at the jet propulsion Laboratory received a signal from the lander InSight that he sat on the surface of Mars. In the next few hours, engineers will specify how the spacecraft feels. While it is possible to tell unequivocally: the landing went as well .

InSight pierced the Martian atmosphere at speeds 20 to 600 miles per hour and slowed to 12 miles per hour. In less than seven minutes. InSight technology has been used a landing involved in the successful Phoenix mission in 2008. First, to slow down used the parachute, and then activated the engines 12 and the probe gently down on three legs. A brief chronicle of the "seven minutes of terror" .

Began a two-year mission, InSight. During these two years the probe will try to run at least a minimum of scientific problems including the study of mineral resources and possible tectonic activity on Mars.

six Months flight and seven minutes of terror

After six and a half months of traveling through space, InSight pierced the atmosphere of Mars. Then within seven minutes he managed to slow down from almost 20,000 miles per hour to 9 miles per hour, and then he touched the surface.

As we learned about the successful landing of the probe? Watched two tiny spacecraft. They are called satellites and MarCO was launched in may along with InSight. This modified "they were launched," the tiny 10-inch satellite cubes.

When "insight" was on the surface, the module sends a signal to the Ground, telling about the successful arrival. Seven minutes later, the spacecraft used an even more powerful transmitter to send the signal more and tell NASA about your condition.

InSight sat on the surface of Mars. What will happen to him next?

After confirmation of a successful landing, as we have said, to begin a serious scientific mission module. Being on the surface of Mars, InSight will stay in the stillness, so will be able to measure tiny fluctuations in the planet marzorati, catching the sound waves of these events to understand what is in the depths of Mars. Over the next two to three months InSight uses the robotic arm to deploy two of its main instruments: seismometer and samozaryadnyj nail. The seismometer will listen to the earthquake, and the nail will try to drill almost five meters of the surface of Mars to measure the internal temperature of the planet.
