InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) spacecraft is a NASA Mars mission that may be launched in March 2016. It is part of the NASA Discovery Program

Mars Interior Picture

Mars Interior.


The aim of the mission is: 

1. Seek to understand the evolutionary formation of rocky planets, including Earth, by investigating the interior structure and processes of Mars.

2. Investigate the dynamics of Martian tectonic activity and meteorite impacts, which could offer clues about such phenomena on Earth.

The InSight mission is similar in design to the Phoenix Mars lander used successfully in 2007 to study ground ice near the north pole of Mars.


Insight Lander.

History
