Looking deep into Mars

Almost six months after leaving Earth, NASA’s InSight probe landed safely in Elysium Planitia, in the equatorial region of Mars, on November 26. The objective of the two-year mission, which will cost about US$1 billion, is to conduct a detailed study of the planet’s interior and its seismic activity. Scientists hope to gain a better understanding of the geology and formation of Mars and other rocky planets, such as Earth.
