NASA's InSight Lander is ready for work



"Today we can see the first insights into our workspace," said Bruce Banerdt, the mission's lead investigator, in a statement. "Until the beginning of next week, we will take a more detailed look and create a complete mosaic." A camera located at the elbow of the arm takes some of the photos, while another camera under InSight's deck will also take some of them.

InSight has three main tools to study our planetary neighbor. A seismometer records Marsquakes, a heat flux probe measures how much heat is flowing from the interior of Mars, and antennas will track the shaking of the north pole of Mars. Overall, they are used to study how rocky planets in our solar system have formed and evolved over time.

Because instrument placement is so important, it can take up to three months to fully assemble and calibrate. InSight will certainly provide us with lots of pictures by then. At the top, you can see pictures of the camera on the robot arm of the lander showing the instruments of InSight and the earth surrounding the lander. You can also follow the raw images of InSight here.
