date 27 & # 39; November 2006 at 3:00 pm (in Thailand) is a moment & # 39; waiting and raised out of the earth science that NASA & # 39; s & # 39 I Insight; welcome & # 39; on Mars b & # 39; success?
This operation started in the 5 & # 39; May 61, 18: 05 (Thailand). Insight was released from its base in & # 39; Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. United States The main mission is to collect geological data & # 39; Mars.
Secondary Mission: Two small satellites, Wall-E and Eve (the name of the Wall-E) traveled robot with which to test the ability to broadcast the landing of & # 39; Live Insight vehicles & # 39; Mars back to Earth.
Spaceth.co provided that information. The mission in Insight & # 39; Mars consists of three main steps: 1. In the atmosphere 2. To face and 3. touches the ground.
Landing on Mars is the ultimate mission of the rock. There are many problems and obstacles from the atmosphere & # 39; Mars, which is only 1% & # 39; the Earth's atmosphere.
And when passing. The atmosphere is softer than the world. The parachute used is therefore very effective. Given the gravity on Mars, only 38 percent of the world, and b & # 39; so a fall & # 39; on land in & # 39; high speed. And the parachute itself can not be delayed. Need & # 39; rocket to reduce vehicle speed before landing.
The & # 39; landing is a very fast process. Take control & # 39; computers on a pre-programmed vehicle. But when it comes to real time. The computer needs to be processed, analyzed and resolved. A slip of the program leads to the mission fail immediately.
The landing gear was & # 39; success. Will drilled deep below the surface & # 39; Mars about 5 meters to store geological data. The SPACETH.CO page will direct 27 & # 39, November 61, at 01: 00 & # 39; forward.
