NASA's InSight lander opens a window into the "inner space" of Mars.

The InSight lander has sent basic communication information back to NASA and the probe is now waiting for the Martian dust to settle before it starts performing science.

InSight's first photo of Mars shows dust speckled on the transparent dust cover that was over the camera.

The three-legged InSight settled on the western side of Elysium Planitia, the plain that NASA was aiming for.

LSU analyst punched in pacemaker after loss to Texas A&M
Fisher told reporters after the game that he was not aware of the scuffle and "had no idea" what happened. Trash talk which allegedly led to an LSU assistant with ALS, Steve Kragthorpe , getting punched.

The notification confirming the device had deployed its solar panels, crucial to the longevity of the mission, came seven hours after touchdown thanks to the MarCO A and B, briefcase-sized satellites that relayed the mission data during the descent operation.

Together, these instruments will study geological processes, said Bruce Banerdt, InSight's principal investigator at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. On Board there is a seismograph and geophysical thermometer. On a clear day, the panels provide 600 to 700 watts - enough power to run a kitchen blender and conduct science.

After the InSight mission touched down on the red planet, Green Day revealed its connection to the moment.

The InSight mission has three main objectives: deploy French-British seismometers to measure any potential "Marsquakes"; activate a German "mole" which will burrow 16.4 feet (five meters) down to take temperature readings from the planet: and a third experiment will use radio waves to determine how Mars is wobbling on its axis.

Deadliest Wildfire In California History Finally Contained
On Wednesday, the same system is expected to deliver a half inch to 2 inches to the Woolsey fire area in Southern California. The nation's deadliest wildfire in a century has killed at least 84 people, and 475 are on a list of those reported missing.

It's possible that humans may make their way up to Mars at some point. Those spacecrafts generally go in a north-south orbit, so when an orbiter is going over InSight, it's also going over Curiosity on the same orbit. This is a self-hammering nail that will drill into the surface of Mars. "But they're low-priced ride-alongs that can allow us to explore in new ways", John Baker, JPL's program manager for small spacecraft said in the statement. "The best of NASA is yet to come, and it is coming soon".

However, given the traditional approach to space Agency to use their equipment, it can be assumed that his mission is actually to stretch - that will potentially allow you to learn more about what factors contributed to the formation of Mars and, indirectly, Earth.

It's a great feat, as only 40 percent of missions to Mars have been successful.

"MarCO is mostly made up of early-career engineers and, for many, MarCO is their first experience out of college on a NASA mission", said Joel Krajewski of JPL, MarCO's project manager. They are the first CubeSats sent into deep space.
