Nasa’s InSight Mars lander ‘wake’s up’ after dust storm

NASA A Nasa robot is dusting itself down after an intense storm on the red planet forced it into safe mode earlier this month. While it is said to be back to “more normal operations”, InSight, a NASA spacecraft which touched down on Mars in 2018, is still operating on reduced power. While the craft … Read more

NASA’s InSight Mars lander hunkering down in Red Planet dust storm

One of NASA’s Mars robots is in safe mode to save power while a dust storm blocks its solar panels from charging. The InSight lander, which is designed to study the interior of Mars, is stable in its safe mode, which the spacecraft initiated on Jan. 7, the agency said in a mission status update … Read more

InSight Peers Deep Below the Surface on Mars

The InSight lander has been on Mars, gathering data for a thousand days now, working to give us a better understanding of the planet’s interior. It’s at Elysium Planitia, the second largest volcanic region on Mars. A newly-published paper based on seismic data from the lander shows something unexpected underground: a layer of sediment sandwiched … Read more

NASA’s Mars Insight Lander Uses Wind-Induced Vibrations To Reveal the Red Planet’s Subsurface Layers

An artist illustration of the InSight lander on Mars. InSight, short for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, is designed to give the Red Planet its first thorough check up since it formed 4.5 billion years ago. The mission is looking for tectonic activity and meteorite impacts, studying how much heat is … Read more

Splitting Up the Sensors in NASA’s InSight Mission

The InSight mission is comprised of a range of cutting-edge sensors designed to learn more about the Red Planet than ever before. Shortly after its arrival on the surface of Mars InSight launcher discovered the first evidence of seismic activity. After nearly ten months of operations, the first results from InSight are revealed in a series … Read more

NASA’s InSight Lander Measures One Of The Biggest And Longest Marsquakes Yet

NASA‘s InSight lander has measured one of the biggest and longest marsquakes yet, which featured tremors of 4.2 magnitude lasting nearly an hour and a half, the space agency said. The robotic seismometre celebrated 1,000 days on the Red Planet on September 18, when it detected the largest tremor since it arrived at the Elysium … Read more

With First Martian Samples Packed, Perseverance Initiates Remarkable Sample Return Mission – NASA’s Mars Exploration Program

NASA, along with the European Space Agency, is developing a campaign to return the Martian samples to Earth. On Sept. 1, NASA’s Perseverance rover unfurled its arm, placed a drill bit at the Martian surface, and drilled about 2 inches, or 6 centimeters, down to extract a rock core. The rover later sealed the rock … Read more
