However, InSight was forced to undergo a difficult test of many other missions to achieve its goal: placing Mars on the surface.
Two-thirds of previous attempts have failed.
It was forced to reduce the speed of the ship from 19.8 thousand km / h to 8 km / h, which left 7 minutes between the shooting and discharge.
The operation was awaited by the NASA mission in the control engine room of the California reaction engine laboratory.
