NASA's InSight Lander Is Officially On Its Way to Mars


According to a report by Gizmodo, NASA's robotic lander, InSight, officially started its journey to Mars following a successful launch Saturday morning. The Atlas V rocket carrying InSight launched at 4:05am local time from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. InSight—short for Interior Exploration Using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport—will spend the next six months crossing over 300 million miles on its way to Mars. It is expected to reach the surface of the Red Planet on November 26th. According to USA Today, NASA’s chief scientist Jim Green said, “This mission will probe the interior of another terrestrial planet, giving us an idea of the size of the core, the mantle, the crust and our ability then to compare that with the Earth. This is of fundamental importance to understand the origin of our solar system and how it became the way it is today.” https://ift.tt/2rrBEmK http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
