      Nasa’s InSight deploys ‘Marsquake’ instrument

      • 20 December 2018The American space agency’s InSight mission to Mars has begun to deploy its instruments.

         

        The lander’s robotic arm has just placed the bell-shaped seismometer package on the ground in front of it.

        This suite of sensors, developed in France and the UK, will listen for “Marsquakes” in an effort to determine the internal structure of the Red Planet.
