NASA’s InSight Mars Lander was sent to Mars on May 2018 and has finally served to the fullest after being in service for more than four years now. The Mars Lander has collected so many crucial reports from our neighboring planet that would help our scientists study the surface and atmosphere of Mars.
The machine has been more than a family to the NASA organization as it has been serving since we knew very little about planet Mars. The Lander recently managed to transcript seismic activity on the land of Mars. The marsquake had an intensity of 4.7 magnitudes rated as the highest among all the seismic activity that has occurred on Mars.
Final Goodbye From NASA Mars Lander
Its time to say final goodbye to our friend that has fulfilled its duty with all the dedication. Mars Lander was expected to serve for two years from the time of landing on Mars but after landing on Mars in 2018, the device has now served for more than four years and that makes a record service by any machine from the planet Mars.
The device will now die as the two 7-feet wide solar panels are completely covered with dust slowly over four years. Now the device will finally sign-off.
The InSight Mars Lander official account on Twitter posted latest image of Mars from the device saying this might be the final image from the device as its finally going to shutdown.
These are the final words from the InSight Lander after sharing last image of Red Planet from its camera- “My time here has been both productive and serene. If I can keep talking to my mission team, I will — but I’ll be signing off here soon. Thanks for staying with me”.
