NASA has approved a new 2016 Mission to Mars.. Mission is called Insight. http://www.aemind.com
The upcoming mission will look at the interior of Mars, as Los Angeles Times science writer Amina Khan reported Tuesday (article here: http://www.aemind.com/marsinsight): “InSight’s instruments will be designed to pick up any seismic activity rumbling through the planet; take note of any meteor impacts on the surface; burrow as much as 16 feet deep to study how heat flows underground; and measure how Mars’ two moons exert tidal forces on the planet, causing it to stretch one way or another.”
This mission to Mars with Insight beat out it’s 2 competing missions.. A mission to Saturn’s Moon Titan and a mission to a comet.
Make sure to let me know if this Mission to Mars by NASA’s JPL is a good idea or not.
