Insight, destinazione Marte

NASA's Mars bound
In this undated photo made available by NASA on March 29, 2018, engineer Joel Steinkraus uses sunlight to test the solar arrays on one of the Mars Cube One (MarCO) spacecraft at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. The MarCOs will be the first CubeSats - a kind of modular, mini-satellite - flown into deep space. They're designed to fly along behind NASA's InSight lander on its cruise to Mars.

Parte il 5 maggio la missione Insight della Nasa verso Marte dalla base militare californiana di Vandenberg. La data di arrivo prevista è il 26 novembre nella regione vulcanica chiamata Elysium Planitia. InSight (sigla per Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) esplorerà le profondità del pianeta rosso con i suoi terremoti e le sue temperature per dedurne dati sulla sua origine e formazione e di conseguenza sulla formazione di tutti i pianeti rocciosi come anche la Terra e la Luna.
