» Watch more Elements! http://bit.ly/ElementsPlaylist One year into its 2-year mission, a heat probe attached to a self-burrowing mechanical mole on NASA's InSight spacecraft is not where it is supposed to be. The probe, designed to go as deep as 5 meters down into the soil on Mars, has barely scratched the surface, getting stuck only about 0.3 meters down before recently popping back out, leaving scientists troubleshooting on how to get the probe deeper into the Martian soil. The engineers who designed the instrument at the German Aerospace Center had planned a sort of whack-a-mole approach when it came to burying the thermometer, but the soil ended up providing too little friction to keep the digger in place. And so, after trying a few other approaches (like pinning the mole against the side of its burrow with the lander’s arm), the team is back to the drawing board. Find out more about how the NASA InSight mission is going overall, and how engineers plan to tackle this Martian mole hiccup on the Red Planet on this episode of Elements. #NASA #Mars #InSight #Seeker #Elements #Science NASA Just Launched a Mission to Mars to Dig Deep Inside the Planet’s Core

What's wrong with InSight's Experiment? InSight Mission Update
What is wrong with InSight's HP3 Experiment? Can NASA salvage the instrument? In this video, we look at an update to the InSight Lander that is currently on the surface of Mars. NASA InSight Mars Lander has the main purpose to study the interior structure of Mars, what it is made up of, and how it might have evolved over time. In this video, we focus more on the HP3 Problem or the Heat Flow Probe that is onboard the Mission. This experiment was supposed to dig into the Martian soil and record temperature variations at different depths. Back in May, the InSight team announced that the probe had gotten stuck just as it was about to get below the surface. Over the last six months, the team has tried various methods of salvaging this experiment. In the video, I step through the different methods, talk about what the challenges are, and how they have tried to overcome them. Hope NASA can save this experiment on Mars!

NASA's Mars Insight 'Mole' is Stuck - Fixes Proposed
NASA's Mars Insight probe's 'mole' instrument, which is a a self-hammering spike to dig into the Martian surface, had some issues following deployment. NASA is working on solutions to the problem.

Listen to NASA's InSight at Work on Mars
NASA's InSight lander placed a seismometer on the Martian surface to study marsquakes. While it's found many, it has also detected other kinds of seismic signals, including some produced by the spacecraft itself. That includes wind gusts, InSight's robotic arm moving around and "dinks and donks," friction caused by parts inside the seismometer moving against each other as the temperature changes. Put on your headphones and you can hear sonifications of this seismic "noise" recorded on March 6, 2019, the 98th Martian day, or sol, of the mission. Around 2 p.m. local Mars time, the spacecraft's arm was moving and snapping pictures with its cameras, surveying InSight’s “workspace.” This audio would be too faint for the human ear to heart it on Mars. It's been sped up by 10 times and processed so you can hear the kinds of signals InSight sends back for its scientists to study.
Robert Downey Jr. Announces NASA's 'Rolling Stones Rock'
Before The Rolling Stones took the stage at the Rose Bowl Stadium for a concert on Aug. 22, 2019, actor Robert Downey Jr. announced to the crowd that a rock on Mars had been named for the band by NASA's Mars InSight lander team.
InSight’s retrorockets sent "Rolling Stones Rock" rolling about 3 feet (1 meter) as the spacecraft touched down on Mars on Nov. 26, 2018. It's the farthest NASA has seen a rock roll after landing a spacecraft on another planet. A little larger than a golf ball, the rock is about 2.2 inches (5.5 centimeters) in diameter and 1 inch (2.4 centimeters) in height. A series of divots marked its course after being set in motion by the landing. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), a division of Caltech, manages InSight for NASA. JPL is located about three miles away from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

NASA Names “Rolling Stones Rock” on Mars
The team behind NASA's InSight lander has informally named a rock on Mars “Rolling Stones Rock” after the band.
A little larger than a golf ball, the rock appeared to have rolled about 3 feet (1 meter) on Nov. 26, 2018, propelled by InSight's retrorockets as the spacecraft touched down to study the Red Planet's deep interior. In images taken by InSight the next day, several divots in the orange-red soil can be seen trailing "Rolling Stones Rock." It's the farthest NASA has seen a rock roll while landing a spacecraft on another planet. For more about the mission, visit https://mars.nasa.gov/insight/ Video Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Fifty years after Apollo 11 astronauts deployed the first seismometer on the surface of the Moon, NASA InSight’s seismic experiment transmits data giving researchers the opportunity to compare marsquakes to moon and earthquakes. Seismologists operating the Marsquake Service at ETH Zurich literally rocked and rolled as they experienced, for the first time, two 'marsquakes' in the university’s quake simulator. Researchers uploaded actual data from marsquakes detected on Martian solar day or Sol 128 and 173.The marsquakes were detected by the SEIS seismometer, whose highly sensitive electronics were delivered by the Aerospace Electronics and Instruments laboratory at ETH.
NASA InSight: A Plan to Get the Mole Moving Again
NASA InSight scientist/engineer Troy Hudson gives us the game plan for getting the mission's heat probe, also known as the "mole," digging again on Mars. For more about the mission, visit: https://www.nasa.gov/insight and https://mars.nasa.gov/insight/
NASA's InSight Lander May Have Detected First Marsquake
According to a report by Gizmodo, NASA's InSight lander may have detected its first marsquake using its ultra-sensitive seismometer. In December of 2018 Insight successfully deployed its Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure instrument, followed by the deployment of its protective dome in February. NASA reportedly said that it is still analyzing data from an April 6th, 2019 event that, if confirmed, may be the first geologically induced tremor ever detected on another planet. SEIS team lead Philippe Lognonné in the press release, “We’ve been waiting months for a signal like this. It’s so exciting to finally have proof that Mars is still seismically active. We’re looking forward to sharing detailed results once we’ve had a chance to analyze them.”

NASA captures sound of Martian wind
NASA's InSight space probe has sent back the first sounds ever heard from the surface of Mars. "CBS This Morning" has details.
Mars' 'Really Unworldly' Wind Recorded For First Time
HuffPost reports that NASA’s new Mars lander has captured the first sounds of the “really unworldly” Martian wind.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena released audio clips of the alien wind Friday. The low-frequency rumblings were collected by the InSight lander. The lander collected the sounds during its first week of operations at Mars.
The wind is estimated to be blowing 10 mph to 15 mph. according to the researchers, these are the first sounds from Mars that are detectable by human ears.
Thomas Pike of Imperial College London said the rumbling is “rather different to anything that we’ve experienced on Earth, and I think it just gives us another way of thinking about how far away we are getting these signals.”

Mars InSight Landing Party | Vlog from the University of Oxford Physics
Oxford Physics threw a landing party for members of the public and the Physics Department to share with the Oxford InSIght team the moment that the robot successfully landed on Mars. I took myself and my video camera and filmed those super tense moments and caught up with a couple of the scientists after the successful landing. Sadly, no videos were taken when we all decompressed in the pub afterwards! NASA's InSight probe will monitor the geological activity on Mars with a seismometer and a heat probe to help detect Marsquakes and determine the internal structure of Mars. (This was all recorded on my handycam so the video isn't the best quality. Also my little microphone tried its best but there is a lot of background noise in this video, sorry!)

Watch NASA land INSIGHT on Mars!!!!
It's been less than 7 months since the INSIGHT lander took off from Vandenberg Air Force Base on top of an Atlas V rocket... and NOW it's going to be landing on Mars! This is super exciting! First landing since Curiosity in 2012. First time we'll be drilling deep into Mars to see what lies below the surface. First time we'll be measuring Mars quakes precisely. There'll be 7 minutes of terror as NASA will lose communications with INSIGHT as it begins descent. During that time, Insight will enter the atmosphere and bleed off speed using a heat shield, then a parachute bleeds off more speed, and lastly it will drop out of a shell and propulsively land softly on the surface (hopefully).

The landing will kick off a two-year mission in which InSight will become the first spacecraft to study Mars' deep interior. Its data also will help scientists understand the formation of all rocky worlds, including our own. InSight is being followed to Mars by two miniature NASA spacecraft, jointly called Mars Cube One (MarCO), the first deep-space mission for CubeSats. If MarCO makes its planned Mars flyby, it will attempt to relay data from InSight as it enters the planet's atmosphere and lands. InSight and MarCO flight controllers will monitor the spacecraft's entry, descent and landing from Mission Control at JPL.

Why NASA Is Sending An $850 Million Hammer To Mars
NASA is sending an $850 million lander to Mars. Using a drill to dig deeper into the planet than ever before, Insight will be the first of its kind to study Mars’ interior. This mission will help us learn more about the origins of our solar system. ------------------------------------------------------ #NASA #Mars #ScienceInsider Following is the transcript of the video: NASA's about to break new ground like never before, by sending a giant drill to Mars. It's the largest drill NASA has ever sent to space, and it will dig deeper into Mars than ever before. The mission? Uncover clues to one of the most outstanding mysteries in our solar system. NASA's $850 million InSight Lander is the first designed to study the interior structure of Mars. Until now, NASA's landers mainly focused on exploring Mars' surface for signs of potential life. They've touched down near volcanoes, valleys, and canyons. But InSight won't be going anywhere like that, since InSight is not a rover and can't move around. NASA has one shot to land it in the perfect spot, here! Elysium Planitia, sometimes referred to as the biggest parking lot on Mars. It's one of the plainest spots NASA could find and the perfect place for InSight. For one, it's close to the equator, guaranteeing the solar panels that power InSight's instruments will work year-round for its nearly two-year mission. But most importantly, that smooth surface will make it easier for InSight's drill to bore deep into the Martian soil. The drill works like a motorized nail, hammering itself into the ground. Over the course of 40 days, the drill will reach 16 feet into the planet. That's roughly the length of a car. For comparison, NASA's Curiosity Rover only dug about half an inch deep. That's the length of an aspirin pill. As InSight digs, it will occasionally shoot out bursts of heat. By calculating how quickly that heat warms the ground around it, InSight can measure the chemical makeup of the soil. But InSight's drill pulls double duty. As it hammers away, it also sends vibrations through the ground, which are sensitive to different layers that might be hiding under the surface. For example, if Mars has underground lava flows, those vibrations will find them. But this only gives NASA clues to the shallower layers of Mars. To understand the deep inner core, InSight has another tool that will measure how much Mars wobbles on its axis. It works similar to an egg. If you spin an uncooked egg, the liquid yolk will slosh around making the egg wobble. But if the inside is cooked, there's less wobble. Similarly, how much Mars wobbles can tell us whether its core is molten liquid or solid metal. And all these clues can help scientists solve a bigger mystery of how rocky planets like Mars and Earth formed in the first place. By studying the interior of Mars, scientists can get a better grasp on how Mars has evolved over billions of years from a warm, wet world to the desolate landscape it is today. But there's an even bigger objective on the horizon. Ultimately, the more we know about our own solar system, the better we get at searching for other planets beyond our solar system that may have the potential to harbor life. ------------------------------------------------------ Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more.
