NASA's Mars Insight Mission and Technology Overview
NASA's InSight lander successfully arrived on Mars on November 26, 2018. Insight is the first robotic explorer in space to study Mars' crust, mantle, and core in-depth. In doing so, the mission's team members hope to unlock the mysteries of the formation and evolution of rocky planets, including Earth. InSight project manager Tom Hoffman spoke with Tech Briefs about the landing and what's next for InSight.
