NASA’s Mars InSight Lander's Drill Runs Into A Rocky Hurdle

Description

According to a report by Digital Trends, the Mars InSight lander ran into trouble this week with its mission to drill down into the surface to measure heat from inside the planet. The lander's probe, part of the Heat and Physical Properties Package, was supposed to dig up to 16 feet down into the surface so it could collect accurate data on temperatures.

The faint seismic signal was measured and recorded by NASA's InSight lander on April 6. It's the first recorded trembling that apparently originated inside the planet, NASA explained in a statement, as opposed to being caused by forces above the surface, like wind. Scientists are still studying the data to figure out the exact cause of the signal.
