NASA will broadcast the landing a new lander on Mars

NASA has sent to the Red planet, a number of high-tech robots, but we usually know only about the fact landing, bypassing the stage of entering the atmosphere. This will change when the lander InSight, which should touch the surface of Mars on 26 November, will enter the atmosphere because NASA is going to broadcast this event to all over the world. No, the lander will send the video as he rushes to the surface of Mars, but the space Agency will be interested in live comments and videos from the jet propulsion Laboratory, so we can see how scientists and engineers do their work in real time.

In a new message in his blog JPL says that it plans to conduct two live broadcasts simultaneously. One of them will be broadcast on the public channel NASA TV and will include expert commentary explaining what’s going on, and detailed updates. The second will be a “smooth, clean flow inside MCC JPL, audio only”, so you can hear what they are talking about engineers and managers.

Launched on 5 may probe InSight marks the first mission to Mars since the Curiosity Rover in 2012. The landing will begin a two-year mission in which InSight will be the first spacecraft studying the interior of Mars. His data will also help scientists to understand how all the solid worlds are formed, including our own.

InSight to Mars is accompanied by two miniature spacecraft NASA, called the Mars Cube One (MarCO), the first mission into deep space to CubeSats. If MarCO will make a scheduled flyby of Mars, he will try to transfer the data from the InSight, when you enter the planet’s atmosphere and land.

If all goes according to plan, InSight will provide data on Mars, which scientists can now only dream of. Learn how to work the internal organs of the planet, it will be incredibly interesting. We will definitely keep track of all the interesting discoveries which will follow the days and months after the landing of the spacecraft.
