“This may be the last photo I send as my energy is low.. But don’t worry about me.. My time here has been productive and peaceful. I will continue to talk to my mission team if possible… but I’ll be signing off here soon… Thanks for being with me,” NASA tweeted under the name Insight. In fact, although the time limit of this mission is two years, it is noteworthy that the additional two years will be served.
On November 1, NASA announced that InSight’s performance had slowed. Soon it will be muted and the time has come for the end of the mission to reveal the secrets of Mars. “The day is coming when the InSight lander will go dark… ending its history-making mission to reveal the secrets inside the planet Aruna,” NASA said on its website.
On November 26, the rover tweeted, “I’ve been lucky enough to live on two planets…I reached the second planet safely less than four years ago..My family was happy when I sent the first message..Thanks to my team for sending me here..I’m on this journey of discovery.” I hope I have made you proud,” she said. Meanwhile, NASA will officially announce that this mission is over if the attempts to communicate with the ground center fail twice.
The first robotic insider to probe the interior of Mars using seismic investigations, geodesy, heat transport. One of its researches is the study of seismic activity on Mars. Aruna has collected data on more than 1,300 earthquakes since landing on the planet. In October 2022, InSight detected an earthquake with a magnitude of 4 on the Richter scale after the impact of a 16-39-foot asteroid. Researchers recently found that Mars’ mantle has more iron than Earth’s, with data sent by InSight.
According to NASA, studying the internal structure of Mars will provide answers to how rocky planets formed in the inner solar system. Nasa says that the InSight rover’s power generation continues to lose power as airborne dust hardens on the solar panels.
