Cape Canaveral – NASA spacecraft is designed to filter down inside Mars on the " Planet Monday after a loud soundtrack through its red wings, to remove scientists who had been in a position; Waiting for a white shower to prove up to 100 million miles of space.

Flight Laboratories at Jet Laboratory Laboratory NASA were in Pasadena, California, who jumped out of their chairs, hear, dance and her; fighting when they were learning that InSight returned to Mars, the burial ground for many previous missions.

"Touchdown Test!" A flight controller called just before the 3ft EST, which triggered the disturbance of the control room with his / her; A spaceboat making his six-minute descendant.

Due to the distance between Earth and Mars, it took eight minutes to confirm that they arrived, donated by a pair of tiny little soldiers who had been running

Not only did the two satellites put out the good news in a short time, they put back the first InSight de Mars picture just 4½ minutes after landing.

The picture was covered with excavation because the cover was still on the face of a camera, but the ground was around the spacecraft; Looking flat and sandy with just one sizable rock to be seen – well what scientists hoped. Improved pictures are expected in the days ahead, after the dust cover comes.

B & B was born in NASA; – in fact, humanity – Mars's eighth successful trip from the Viking shoes in 1976, and its first in six years. NASA's Curiosity rover, which came into operation in 2012, is still moving Mars.

"No," he named JPL's chief engineer, Rob Manning. "This is the hope we hope and think in mind," he said. "Sometimes things work out after you."

NASA administrator, Jim Bridenstine, told his / her leadership; The first Mars to come in as leader of the organization, "The amazing day for our country".

InSight, a $ 1 billion international project, incorporating a German mechanical mill which, Excavating 16 feet (5 meters) to measure Mars inside heat. There is also a seismometer in Britain for wheat measurement, if they are on a less geological neighbor. Another test will measure Mars to going to attack the & # 39; planet.

"In the coming months and years, even, history books will be rewritten inside Mars," said JPL director Michael Watkins.

Seven hours after recycling, NASA said solar panels were essential in the InSight open and included in their batteries.

Over the next two "sols" – or Martian 24 hours a day, 39½ minutes – flight controllers are also involved in the health assessment of InSight's psychiatrist and their science devices.

Many of Mars's spaceships were launched by US, Russia and other countries that were launched missing or destroyed over the years, with a 40% success rate, without counting InSight .

NASA was currently using its original simple, and used parachute and brake engine to get an InSight speed from 12,300 mph (19,800 kph) when it hit the Martian atmosphere, about 77 miles (114km) up to 5 miles (8km / h) at re-time. It was the danger that the spacecraft could be able to; burn up in the air or burn it.

The InSight three-legged position was located on the west side of Elysium Planitia, the plane NASA was aiming for. Project manager, Tom Hoffman, said the spacecraft was coming close to the bull's eyes, but NASA's final calculations still failed.

He said that it was difficult to tell from the first picture if there were slopes near, but that it seemed to have received the flat "parking area" he hoped.

There were exhibitions in museums, planetariums and libraries across the USA to watch the events that are going on. appear at JPL. NASA TV coverage was also shown on the big screen in New York Times Square, where people were split under umbrellas in the water.

InSight is 800-not (360-kilogram) enough and works from the same site for the next two years, during the year of Martian. It will take months to organize and present the instruments, and scientist Bruce Banerdt said he was not expecting to introduce a stream of strong data to the end of spring.

"It's really good. I can not wait to see marsquakes," said Hoffman.

The interior of Mars is well-preserved which provides a description of the type that might look like to & # 39; continues after creating 4.5 billion years ago, according to Banerdt. Although the ground is curiously active, Mars decided to "rest on the laurels" after being established, he said.

By studying and & # 39; mapping within Mars, scientists are hoping to find out why the rocky planets in our solar system came so different and why the land became a center for life.

However, life detectors are not on board InSight. NASA's ambition, the rover Mars 2020, will be a prowl for rocks that could be & # 39; giving evidence of old life.

It's a question that was the life of her; Ever in the wet, wet history of Mars that runs NASA's drive back to her; fourth rock from the sun.
