Last Monday, the ship & # 39; Insight NASA finally landing on the surface of the planet & # 39; Mars. That is, if all goes according to plans.
The vessel, whose aim is to explore the interior of & # 39; Mart, has been traveling through & # 39; space since the start of the first time in 5 & # 39; May 2018. It remains & # 39; extremely critical moment for the craft, ie lands safely on the red planet.
Seven & # 39; important minutes
The actual landing takes no more than seven & # 39; minutes for Insight – seven but it & # 39; crucial minutes when the rocket is going to fail at high altitude.
Fortunately, the craft must guard the fire heat-resistant to protect against friction before going to parachute more stops. The last part of the journey, the car itself reduce speed machines.
Continue & # 39; on Mars, Insight, 7 minutes after landing, will send sound to confirm that the plan of landing on the planet. Moments later, even the first images will be able to be wired from the place & # 39; their landing, Space News writes.
Researching & # 39; inside & # 39; Mart
The excitement is really dark. For Insight, certainly not a vehicle – is about research revolution Mars and x & # 39; is currently running below its surface.
"We have studied Mars from orbit and the surface since 1965. We learned about the weather of the planet, the atmosphere, geology and surface chemistry" Lori glaze, Acting Director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA & # 39; statement.
"Now, finally, will explore the interior of the Earth and deepen our understanding of our neighbors while NASA is preparing to send more human exploration and more in our solar system."
You digs below the surface
The idea is to Insight will digs below the surface & # 39; March. And with the help of & # 39; sismom, the craft will take the pulse on the underworld by recording waves. The waves can & # 39; resulting from tectonic activity, putting & # 39; meteorite, liquid magma or the so-called Marshvulsions, writes the left Illustrated Science.
"The biggest issue we respond is the appearance of structure & # 39; the interior of & # 39; Wife and flow & # 39; energy," said Bruce Banerdt, the Business Insight Investigator -NASA for Space News.
Chance witness spectacular jumps
But not only jumps in & # 39; March is interesting throughout Monday. You can & # 39; view all the land. You read b & # 39; correct way – from the ground!
Looking at the Waterman constellation around 21:00, you can & # 39; see March with the naked eye. Of course, binoculars are preferable for those who want to see b & # 39; extra attention!
