NASA’s InSight Places First Instrument on Mars
Nasa’s Insight rover has placed a seismometer on the surface of Mars. According to Nasa, the importance of this is huge –
“The seismometer allows scientists to peer into the Martian interior by studying ground motion — also known as marsquakes. Each marsquake acts as a kind of flashbulb that illuminates the structure of the planet’s interior. By analyzing how seismic waves pass through the layers of the planet, scientists can deduce the depth and composition of these layers.”
Everything about this mission is incredibly exciting, and I can’t wait to see further results of the Insight’s missions.
