The device InSight successfully sat down on Mars


Descent became the culmination of a seven-months travel of the spaceship of NASA to the Red planet. The automatic interplanetary station NASA InSight successfully sat down on the surface of Mars near uplands of Elisions. It occurred at 21:54 on the Ukrainian time. The device fell by a surface at a speed about eight kilometers per hour. Its braking began with speed about 20 thousand kilometers per hour at distance about 125 kilometers from a surface. NASA named atmospheric entry of Mars "seven minutes of horror". Since the 1960s 21 attempts to put devices on the Red planet were made, but success was achieved by only seven missions. However all of them are American. Bombs are cancelled. Mars will not become Novaya Zemlya to InSight on a design yet - the twin of the probe Phoenix which went to Mars in 2007. Descent became the culmination of a seven-months travel of the spaceship to the Red planet. The main task of the device - to make the first really high-quality seismological observations on the planet and to measure heat stream from a subsoil of Mars. To take temperature, InSight will need to drill the deepest well in the history of the planet - five meters in depth. Thus on data fluctuations of temperature will not influence surfaces.
