NASA has sent a number of high-tech robots to the red star, but we usually do not hear how things like entry and landing went on until after the fact, it's going to change with the advent of the InSight lander, which is supposed to touch on Mars on November 26, "A going to live stream the entire event for the world to watch.
No, the lander will not send back a live video of itself as it approaches the surface of Mars, but the space agency is about to get live commentary and video feeds from the laboratory system of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory so we can see the scientists and engineers doing their real-time.
In a new blog post, JPL says it actually plans to make two streams live side by side. One will be streamed on NASA's public television channel and will include an interpretation by experts to explain what is going on and provide detailed updates.The second will be what NASA called "continuous and clean input from JPL's task control, with mission-only audio," meaning you can hear the engineers And the mornings talk to each other without anyone telling the action.
JPL added some extra color to the special character of the mission:
Launched on May 5, Insight marks NASA's first landing since landing in 2016. The underground will emerge from a two-year mission in which Insight will become the first spacecraft to probe the deep space of Mars, and will help scientists understand the formation of all rocky worlds , Including ours.
InSight is in the wake of Mars by two small NASA spacecraft, called Mars Mars, the first deep space mission for CubeSats.If Marco makes Mars's planned flight, it will attempt to transfer data from InSight when it enters the star atmosphere And his lands.
If everything goes as planned, Insight will provide data on Mars that scientists can only dream about. Find out how the courage of working on the planet should be wonderfully interesting, and we will keep an eye on all sorts of discoveries arranged in the days and months after the landing of the spaceship.
