Mars Insight Mission Launching Soon!

The latest mission to Mars, Insight, plans to launch on May 5, 2018! The goal is to land a seismometer on the Red Planet to measure marsquakes and search for traces of tectonic movement. I find this very relevant to my research for Book 2, but I don’t think any data will be back in time before I publish! But it is very interesting!!

Scientific American has a great article summarizing the mission. And Nature.com has an article with additional Areological updates.
