InSight is one of NASA’s most recent projects involving sending a digger rover to Mars. InSight is known as, Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport. The digging robot landing about 400 miles away from NASA’s Curiosity rover. It reached the speed of 12,000 per hour when it hit Mars’ atmosphere. It successfully performed its arrival, dive, and landing series. This sequence is referred to as “the seven minutes of terror”, because it required various immensely high-risk maneuvers. Within those seven minutes anything could make or break the mission. InSight applied its breaks by having the parachute deployed, discarded its heat shield, and activated its retro rockets to guide it gently to the surface. It took 8 minutes to receive feedback on the condition of the digging robot to be transmitted back to earth. InSight is the first mission sent to Mars focusing on exploring the planets interior. The intention of having a digging robot on mars is to dig five meters down into the surface while stationary. Making it the furthest down surface mission than any before it. To accomplish this venture the lander will deploy a small probe nicknamed “the mole”. The probe is powered by a spring mechanism allowing it to hammer a hole in half a meter-increments until it reaches bedrock beneath the outer rocky layer of Mars’ surface. As it plummets, the mole will record the heat emerging from the interior of the planet. InSight is also planning on deploying a precision seismometer. The precision seismometer is is called, Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS). The lander’s robotic arm will set SEIS on Mars’ surface to listen for “Marsquakes” along with other geological activity. Marsquakes are alike to earthquakes, just less frequent due to the lack of tectonic movement on Mars. InSight is also supplied with two cameras, a retroreflector, a weather sensor, and a Rotation and Interior Structure Experiment (RISE). The robot is predicted to evaluate Mars’ interior for at least two years.
