Insight to Mars … New NASA Mission

NASA has approved a new 2016 Mission to Mars.. Mission is called Insight.

The upcoming mission will look at the interior of Mars, as Los Angeles Times science writer Amina Khan reported Tuesday (article here: “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.
