It's Official: Mars = US Soil

Post by Fat Cat » Mon Nov 26, 2018 10:31 pm

US space agency Nasa has landed a new robot on Mars after a dramatic seven-minute plunge to the surface of the Red Planet.

The InSight probe aims to study the deep interior of Mars, and make it the only planet - apart from Earth - that has been examined in this way.
