InSight Live Q&A: Journey to the Center of Mars with the Lander Team

Posted by in category: space

Take a trip with us to the center of Mars! NASA’s InSight Lander has detected hundreds of quakes with its seismometer since landing on the Red Planet in November 2018. Those seismic events have shed light on the crust, mantle, and core of the planet, as well as how the separate layers formed. Those findings may offer insight into how all rocky planets formed, including Earth.
