NASA is counting on Monday for the first Mars, which is capable of listening to earthquakes of Mars InSight $ 993 million and exploring the internal work of the rocky planet.
An unmanned spacecraft was launched about seven months ago and reached 482 million kilometers. Part of his mission is to inform the planet's efforts to send some researchers to the red planet, with NASA's intention to achieve the decade in 2030.
Mars shooting Since 2012, NASA's Curiosity researcher has walked and dropped when it came to earth and analyzed the living things on the planet Earth.
InSight runs at an average speed of 19,800 kmph. It is difficult to penetrate the red planet, which speeds up to eight kilometers per hour.
Registration, download and unloading will start at 7:45 am Monday. NASA links the scene as six and a half minutes into terror.
Out of 43 missions sent to Mars, only 18 had reached the Red Planet, reaching 40 percent and coming from the United States. It's very hard to go to Mars, "says Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA's Science Fellow.
The most interesting thing is that we are based on the success of the best team coming to this planet – NASA team with its contractors and their staff.
InSight is derived from internal intelligence using seismic investigations, geodesy and heat transport. The spacecraft stops about one meter and lasts six meters after installing solar panels.
With a full load of fuel, InSight weighs more than 360 kg, the same as the Harley Davidson motorcycle. Its central tool is the seismometer made by the French Space Agency (CNES). According to CNES CEO Jean-Yves Le Gall, this is the sole mission of a foreign-made instrument.
