The mission, whose name is short for "Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport", is expected to launch during a five-week window that opens May 5.
The next NASA launch will study Mars' deep interior and even find out if the planet has Marsquakes.
InSight arrived at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on February 28 aboard a C-17 cargo plane, and a new video from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory captures its landing and unloading at the Astrotech payload processing facility.
"So it's ideal timing that we'll be launching TESS to continue the great activity of looking for planets around stars other than our sun and thinking about what it might mean for life in the universe", Paul Hertz, NASA's director of astrophysics, told reporters at a news briefing in Washington on Wednesday. InSight is more than a Mars mission. It will be the first mission ever dedicated to Mars' deep interior, and the first NASA mission since the Apollo moon landings to place a seismometer on the soil of another planet. TESS is an orbiting telescope with a two-year mission to monitor more than 200,000 of the brightest stars closest to the sun with the goal of finding those distant planets, also known as exoplanets, as they pass in front of their stars and cause periodic drops in brightness.
Banerdt said,"In some ways, InSight is like a scientific time machine that will bring back information about the earliest stages of Mars' formation 4.5 billion years ago". The Mars is nearest exoplanet to the earth.
The results and observation from this mission will uncover what is similar between Mars and Earth and of what substance the core, the mantle of Mars is made up of.
The mission, which will last nearly two years, is funded and coordinated mostly by the United States but also Germany, France, and Spain have contributed In total, the InSight mission to Mars will cost roughly around $1 billion, in total. TESS will launch from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. For example, France's Centre National d'. tudes Spatiales (CNES) led a multinational team that built an ultra-sensitive seismometer for detecting marsquakes.
"TESS is opening a door for a whole new kind of study", said Stephen Rinehart, TESS project scientist at Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Center in the USA which manages the mission. "Our partners have delivered incredibly capable instruments that will make it possible to gather unique science after we land".
That's critical for its entry, descent and landing on Mars in November, Hoffman said.
"This next month will be exciting", Banerdt said. Lockheed Martin Space in Denver built and tested the spacecraft. The satellite is undergoing final preparations in Florida, US. InSight is part of NASA's Discovery Program, which is managed by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
