InSight lander illustration (NASA) NASA's InSight spacecraft successfully landed on Mars Monday. The spacecraft landed near the "bullseye" in the Elysium Planitia region of Mars at 2:53 pm EST (1953 GMT) after a textbook entry and descent through the Martian atmosphere. Telemetry from InSight was successfully relayed in real time by the twin MarCO cubesats as they flew past the planet. NASA confirmed about seven hours after landing that the spaceraft's solar arrays deployed. The spacecraft will deploy is major instruments, a seismometer and heat flow probe, onto the Martian surface in the next few months, beginning a two-year mission to study the structure and composition of the planet's interior.
