NASA’s InSight Successfully Lands on Mars [First Images and Videos]

NASA’s spacecraft InSight landed on Mars last night.

As a result of six years-long effort, InSight managed to land on Mars last night. By successfully entering the surface of the Red Planet, the spaceship made it’s landing and became the first vehicle to go to Mars in six years. Lastly, the spacecraft has gained limited information about Mars and thus opened the horizon of new discoveries. The vehicle is expected to obtain information about both the surface and the underground structure. So it has opened the path to investigate whether life is possible on the Red Planet. Elysium Planitia has located 550 kilometers away from another legend spacecraft the Curiosity.

What are the Mission Details of NASA’s InSight?

The InSight will do these tasks: measuring the red planet’s “vital signs”: Its “pulse” (seismology), “temperature” (heat flow probe) and “reflexes” (precision tracking). It will also help NASA know about the structure and size of the core. As a result of these tasks, perhaps new life colonies will be mobilized soon. You can watch the first footage from the video below.
