NASA has sent the spacecraft ‘Insight’ on an amazing trip to Mars.

The lander will explore parts of the Red Planet that have never been researched before.

It achieved lift off at 4:05am in California (that’s 12:05am our time) on Sunday morning.

The rocket travelled faster than the speed of sound as it blasted off into space.

Once it has landed on the planet, it will carry out a mission that will last one Mars year (which is roughly two Earth years).

InSight will study three parts of Mars – the crust, the mantle and the core – by recording its earthquakes. Check out the cool video below for the latest information.

  1. That’s so cool that mars’s years are different, I didn’t know that ?

  2. whoa this is really cool, but can they explore the 90 percent of water that´s on earth! (only 10 percent of the water is has been explored on earth we could find a new pet or that dinos are still alive en a new species or an under water human who knows)

  3. I find this topic very interesting because I really like space and there is so much to explore in space.
