NASA's Mars InSight slapper needs to touch the Red Planet for about 3 hours. EST on November 26.
And you are invited to watch.
A live event – marking the first landing on Mars from the Curiosity 2012 birthday – will be broadcast live on NASA Television, on the agency's website and on social media platforms.
"InSight will be the first mission to be deeply beneath the Martian surface, studying the interior of the planet by measuring its thermal power and listening to marshals, which are seismic events similar to earthquakes on Earth," says the National Authority for Aeronautics and Space.
InSight was launched shortly to explore the interior surfaces using seismic research, geodesy and heat transport on May 5 from Wandenberg Air Base in California.
"It will use seismic waves that have generated marches to develop a map of the deep inside of the planet," NASA said in a May announcement. "An insight into the formation of Mars will help us better understand how other rocky planets, including the Earth, were created."
Scientists are also hoping to determine the speed of motor impacts on the tectonic activity and the meteorite.
Together for driving is a special experiment known as Mars Cube One (MarCO), which consists of two miniaturized satellites built by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Assuming that the two communicators come to Mars, they will track InSight for the period after landing.
Coverage starts on Wednesday, November 21, with two news conferences, and continues on Sunday, November 25, when the agency delivers a final anastavia before landing, in front of the K & A session with the InSight team.
Live interviews start at 6 am on November 26; Set up on a landing note from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The final press conference will be held no later than 5 hours.
About 80 personal events will be open to the public across the United States and in Germany, France and the French Reunion (on the coast of Madagascar). Can not leave home or office? Watch online through different platforms.
