The Nasa engineers will take Monday launch maneuver is their favorite activity at least in Space will try jillutjaw area & # 39; robot on Mars.
F & # 39; in this case, are trying to stop their probe, Insight, gently called Elysium Planitia area is intended to analyze the seismic activity on the red planet.
Were sent more probes to Mars than any other planet in the solar system but more than half of these missions ended in failure, with the final stages, involving landing b & # 39; gently on the Martian surface, resulting particularly dangerous and unsuccessful.
The thin atmosphere on Mars – only 1% of the World – means little friction to reduce the speed of & # 39; spacecraft, and played a key role in & # 39; past failures. Therefore, nerves of Nasa engineers are directing aircraft & # 39; & # 39 of their Insight; $ 800 million after trip & # 39; 300 million miles in & # 39; a small target area in the planet's atmosphere which measures just 15 miles by 6 miles.
If Insight pass by the key precisely, shall be placed in & # 39; half the Elysium Planitia, although they require heat-resistant capsule, parachute and rockets to reduce its speed from 12,000 mph to 5mph and ensure that it arrives b & # 39; SOFFA and safe after landing & # 39; seven & # 39; minutes.
The most recent attempt landed in & # 39; Mars was made two years ago by a European probe, which crashed on the planet's surface. However, Nasa remains & # 39; confident of success.
It is expected that Insight – representing Inland Exploration using & # 39; Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Transportation & # 39; Heat – help scientists understand the early evolution & # 39; Mars and other planets in the solar system, including Earth. Measuring temperatures and seismic activity.
