INCREIBLE: Estas Son Las Primeras Imagenes En Marte De La Nueva Sonda De La Nasa

El artefacto estudiara el subsuelo del planeta rojo!

November 27, 2018

Increibles las imagenes de la sonda Insight que a llegado a estudiar el planeta rojo por los proximos 2 años:

#NoFilter! Our InSight lander sent home its first photo after this afternoon’s #MarsLanding - the first time we’ve landed on the Red Planet in six years! The instrument context camera mounted below the lander deck obtained this image on the surface of Mars shortly after touching down at 2:52 p.m. EST. The transparent lens cover was still in place to protect the lens from any dust kicked up while landing near Mars' equator on the western side of a flat, smooth expanse of lava called Elysium Planitia. For the next two years, the spacecraft will use its unique tools to conduct Mars’ first thorough checkup since it formed 4.5 billion years ago. As the first outer space robotic explorer to study in-depth the “inner space” of Mars, the mission will help us understand how rocky planets, including Earth, formed.

Mars is infamous for intense dust storms. Right now, a massive Martian dust storm is affecting operations of our Opportunity rover. This storm is already one of the most intense ever observed on the Red Planet. The storm, which was first detected by our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on May 30, has grown to cover more than 15.8 million square miles (41 million square kilometers) as of June 10 – an area about the size of North America and Russia combined. It has blocked out so much sunlight, it has effectively turned day into night for Opportunity, which is located near the center of the storm, inside Mars' Perseverance Valley. These two views from our Mars Curiosity rover, acquired specifically to measure the amount of dust inside Gale Crater, show that dust has increased over three days from a major Martian dust storm. In the first image, we see a view of the east-northeast rim of Gale Crater on June 10, 2018 (Sol 2077). Swipe to see a view of the same feature on June 7, 2018 (Sol 2074), three days earlier. The images were taken by the rover's Mastcam.
