NASA used InSight's seismometer to measure the vibrations coming in from the solar panel array.
InSight spacecraft that landed on Mars on November 26, transmitted to Earth the your body. Image released December 11, 2018. It gives a detailed look at the lander's solar panels, as well as all the advanced surface mapping and analysis instruments it has onboard.
The workspace photo is also a composite, which combines 52 individual images, NASA officials said.
Ever since NASA's InSight landed on Mars' surface, it has been impressing everyone with some amusing things which no other spacecraft has been capable of. Mission team members have also received their first complete look at InSight's "workspace" - the almost 4-by-2-metre crescent of terrain directly in front of the spacecraft. The photo was captured by InSight's Instrument Deployment Camera (IDC), which is found on the lander's robotic arm.
That image will be studied in detail when scientists and engineers are trying to determine where the instruments should be placed.
Newspaper: Turkey plans new Syria offensive within days
There are some 2,000 U.S. troops now in Syria, many of them stationed in the north. "The campaign against ISIS is not over", he said.
Mariners Acquire Edwin Encarnacion, Trade Carlos Santana to Indians
The move comes less than a month after Santana was dealt from the Phillies to the Mariners as part of the Jean Segura trade. In his final season with the Tribe, Santana hit.259 with 23 homers and 79 runs batted in with 88 walks and 94 strikeouts.
Schmidt refuses to rule out All Blacks job in future
My family has given me unreserved love and support over the last 16 years and I feel it's now time to make them the sole focus. In 2012 Hansen was appointed a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit (CNZM), for services to rugby.
"The near-absence of rocks, hills and holes means it'll be extremely safe for our instruments", said InSight's Principal Investigator Bruce Banerdt of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Then they will command the robotic arm to carefully install the InSight seismometer (SEIS) and the heat flow sensor in the selected areas. But InSight's landing spot is as good as it gets.
He said, 'We're glad to see that'.
NASA chose to land InSight in a region of Mars called Elysium Planitia because the area is relatively free of boulders and craters.
Both work best on level ground, and engineers want to avoid setting them on rocks larger than about a half-inch.
The $850 million InSight mission launched in May, along with two fly-along cubesats named MarCO-A and MarCO-B. That should make it easier for one of InSight's instruments, the heat-flow probe, to bore down to its goal of 16 feet (5 meters) below the surface.
