NASA ’s InSight Mission successfully landed on Mars in November, carrying seismometers, a heat flow probe and an X-band Doppler experiment. The main aims of the mission are to determine the rate of seismic activity on Mars, and use geophysical data collected by the mission to constrain the compositional and temperature structure of the interior. The hope is that by providing a snapshot of Mars’ present-day state, we might be able to better understand the long-term evolution of the planet.
