NASA probe sends around 200000 Chinese names to Mars

Goodwin

The spacecraft took the image of itself from the red dusty planet, arguably making it the first selfie on Mars.

The US space agency tweeted one photograph, showing part of the InSight spacecraft and the Martian surface in the distance.

This is the eighth successful Mars landing.

In a NASA video, Brooke said that they saw 49ers teammates Marquise Goodwin and Kendrick Bourne do that elaborate celebration after Goodwin scored a touchdown against the Chiefs in September.

Landing a spacecraft on Mars is, of course, intricate.

Because Mars is further away from the sun than Earth, it gets weaker sunlight, so it's crucial that InSight's solar panels generate as much energy as possible. The MarCOs are also able to capture unique images as they pass by the Red Planet and some of its moons. The arm also places the seismometer on the surface, from where it can sense vibrations from deep within the Red Planet. Just six minutes before it attempts a landing, it will have been traveling at 14,100 miles per hour.

"It was nearly hard to believe this wasn't written by some Hollywood writer to put the ideal amount of delay in there - so that everybody sat on the edge of their seat".

Oklahoma defensive touchdowns, controversial penalty break West Virginia
On offense the Sooners surpassed 290 rushing yards for the sixth straight game, coinciding with their six-game winning streak. The Sooners' two defensive touchdowns came while sacking West Virginia quarterback and Heisman candidate Will Grier .

After the two trips, NASA sent Bateson an e-boarding pass that shows her name, InSight launch date and the total number of kilometres her name has travelled - 484.8 million. While created to study the interior of the planet, InSight also carries a silicon microchip which includes the names of two million people from Earth on it and 200,000 of the names are from China.

Meanwhile, a radio transmitter will send back signals tracking Mars' subtle rotational wobble to reveal the size of the planet's core and possibly whether it remains molten. NASA says we should expect data back from the experiments around March 2019. "Mars is hard", Thomas Zurbuchen, Nasa associate administrator for the science mission directorate, said on Sunday.

As for next steps, prep for the lander's upcoming two-year mission will begin.

Studying Mars lets us travel to the solar system's ancient past.

Banfield, principal research scientist at Cornell and a co-investigator on InSight's science team, waited patiently at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, listening to mission control with other scientists.

InSight arrived on Mars's Elysium Planitia area north of its equator, described as an ideal spot for its flat, rockless surface.
