NASA Scientists Are Trying To Figure Out How To Rescue InSight

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

According to Digital Trends, "NASA’s InSight lander is facing some challenges as it investigates the Red Planet. Earlier this year it deployed its drilling instrument, the Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package to learn about temperature variations within the Martian soil." Since then scientists have been trying to figure out what caused the problem and what to do next. They believe the mole is stuck because there is not enough friction in the soil. In other areas of Mars, the friction in the soil is higher, so the mole was designed to let loose soil flow around it and hold it in place.
