NASA’s InSight made incredible discoveries on Mars!

NASA’s Insight program is a so-called lander that studies the surface of Mars. It is the first project of its kind worldwide. In addition to sensors for measuring wind and air pressure, the lander also has a seismometer, a heat flow probe and a magnetometer.

While the team continues to work on bringing the probe to the surface of Mars as intended, the highly sensitive seismometer, known as a seismic experiment for the internal structure, has enabled scientists to record several quakes of hundreds to thousands of kilometers. Seismic waves are influenced by the materials through which they travel and give scientists the opportunity to study the composition of the planet’s internal structure. Mars can help the team to better understand how all rocky planets, including Earth, formed first.
