(Pasadena, CA) — The NASA InSight spacecraft has successfully landed on Mars. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory says the Mars mission streaked into the planet’s atmosphere at 12-thousand miles per hour, and slowed by retro rockets and a giant parachute helped its 77-mile descent to the ground. The Insight lander will monitor seismic activity drill 16-feet underground, to give scientists a better understanding of how Mars evolved.
