NASA's InSight Lander Captures Seismic Activity On Mars

Description

Acccording to Mother Nature Network, for the first time ever, humans have detected a likely seismic event on Mars. 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.

  • NASA's InSight Lander Touches Down On Mars

    According to Gizmodo, NASA's latest Mars mission has touched down on the Martian surface. The InSight took six months to reach the Red Planet before initiating it's landing sequence. But the InSight will conduct a different mission for NASA, when compared to the Mars rovers. Instead of cruising around the Martian surface, the InSight lander is a stationary scientific platform with three instruments designed to study the planet's interior.

  • InSight Lander Detects Quake On Mars

    According to Science Magazine, NASA's InSight lander detected a subterranean quake on Mars. The lander's seismometer detected its first verifiable quake on April 6th. The tiny rumble of seismic activity was so small, it would not have been detected on Earth because of waves and wind. But Mars is relatively quiet compared to Earth, which is why the lander’s sensitive seismometer was able to detect it. The lander marks NASA's return to planetary seismology, which dates back to the Apollo missions.

  • NASA's InSight Lander Shares Sights And Sounds Of Mars

    NASA's InSight lander survived its "7 minutes of terror" and successfully touched down on Mars on November 26. The lander got itself up and running, and snapped a picture with its Instrument Deployment Camera. NASA shared the image on its social media channels with a caption from InSight's perspective. According to the Mother Nature Network, it wasn't the first picture taken with the IDC, but it was the prettier of the two. After the images were taken, InSight captured its first audio recording on December 1. InSight's mission is expected to last at least two years.

  • NASA's InSight Lander Is Already Capturing The Sights and Sounds of Mars

    Welcome to Mars, InSight. The Mars lander InSight survived its "7 minutes of terror" and successfully touched down on the red planet on Nov. 26. After that drama, the lander got itself up and running, snapping the picture above with its Instrument Deployment Camera (IDC). The image was shared on NASA's social media channels with a caption from InSight's perspective. "There's a quiet beauty here," someone wrote for the lander. "Looking forward to exploring my new home." This wasn't the first image taken by InSight, however; it was just the prettier of the two.

  • NASA's InSight Lander Takes Amazing Mars Picture

    NASA’s InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) probe successfully completed its soft landing on Mars on Monday after a six-month, 300 million mile journey. And it’s already sending back photos of the desolate Red Planet from its landing site on the Elysium Planitia, courtesy of a post on the lander’s official Twitter feed reading, “There’s a quiet beauty here. Looking forward to exploring my new home.
