The time in Beijing on November 26th, after a six-month flight in space, an insider detector quickly approaches Mars and plans to land on Mars on Monday in the United States.from
After taking off from the Earth and passing through the sidewalk at a distance of 301 million kilometers (548 million kilometers), the detector will land on Mars around 15:00 EST (on Thursday at Beijing time).
The mission control team of NASA's Laboratory for Laser Violence Laboratory plans to make a final correction to the inspector's orbit on Sunday, bringing it closer to the entry point in the Mars atmosphere.
If everything goes well, Insight will enter the Mars atmosphere at a speed of 193,000 km in almost 24 hours. At the time of landing on Mars, atmospheric friction, parachutes and handbrake will slow down the speed of sight. After a 6.5-minute landing, the Inspector's speed will slow down to 5 miles (8 km).
After landing on the surface of Mars, the inspector will remain silent for 16 minutes, waiting for dust that ignited around the landing site to "set up" and then unfold the solar cell.
Engineers at the Reactive Nozzle Laboratory are hoping to use small satellites that are simultaneously starting to confirm that Insight has landed safely.
The engine plant also hopes to get a picture of the situation around the landing site.
Insight's landing point is about 600km from 2012 on the Curiosity Rover Landing Point.
360 kilograms of vision is the 21st Mars exploration mission in the United States (including the mission to fly over Mars in the 1960s).
Discover the formation of rocky planets
Insight is the first detector that specifically reveals mysteries under the surface of Mars. In the next 24 months (around March 1), it will use seismic monitoring and underground drilling to explore Mars and Earth more than 4 billion years ago. The origins and formation of rocky planets.
Bruce Bannert, chief inspector of Insight and a motorcycle scientist, told a news conference last week that "Insights will help us understand the formation of the planet."
Although the structure of the Earth and other forces have wiped out much of its early history, it is believed that Mars largely preserves its original state, creating a geological time machine for scientists.
The main scientific tool implemented by Insight is a highly sensitive seismograph made in France that reveals the smallest vibrations caused by the earthquake "Mars" and the impact of the meteor.
Scientists expect that during the two-year mission period, they will spot 10 to 100 earthquakes on Mars, and the obtained data will help them understand the size, density, and composition of Mars.
The Viking Mars probe began in the 1970s, carrying a seismograph, but mounted on the tip of the detector, this design proved to have little effect.
Insight also carries a German exercise that can hole up to 5 meters deep in the ground.
The radio transmitter is responsible for sending signals to Earth to monitor the rotational effects that Mars is not aware of to understand the size of Mars's core and whether it remains melted.
NASA officials said that the Insight and the next mission on Mars, as well as other tasks still in the planning phase, would be a prelude to human research on Mars.
