NASA’s InSight Landing on Mars


This is scheduled to happen on Monday:



Another one of those “7-minutes-of-terror” events. Hope it works!

Here is NASA’s “watch online” page for it.

And here is InSight’s launch, back in May–two days after lava had started spurting out of the ground in a residential neighborhood in Hawaii on the flanks of Kilauea Volcano.



Addendum: Today, the Curiosity Rover is tweeting encouragement and helpful hints to InSight. 🙂
