NASA's InSight mission touched down on the surface of Mars on Monday at approximately 3 p.m. This in turn will be incorporated into humanity's more general knowledge of how rocky worlds form, from Earth and the Moon to exoplanets such as those in the Trappist-1 system.

The Nasa Viking probes of the mid-1970s were equipped with seismometers, too, but they were bolted to the top of the landers, a design that was largely ineffective.
I wrote about it back in 2017; while not a game, it's still a very game-looking program, which serves as an interactive model of what a realistic colony on Mars might actually look like.
The InSight name is short for "Interior Exploration Using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport".
There is also the rotation and interior structure experiment (RISE). DLR provided the Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package (HP3) instrument, with significant contributions from the Space Research Center (CBK) of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Astronika in Poland. And InSight's magnetometer and weather sensors are taking readings of the landing site, Elysium Planitia - "the biggest parking lot on Mars".
Coincidentally, InSight is relatively close to Curiosity, about 600 kilometers north from the rover's position in Gale Crater. They are now the two closest man-made objects on the surface of Mars. Although Mars receives less sunlight than Earth, InSight doesn't need much power to conduct its science experiments.
Described as "a tool to allow users to explore and learn about a potential future Mars colony", the base depicted is "grounded in real possibilities, informed by real science with direct guidance and feedback from NASA and JPL scientists about the technological and material constraints for building human habitation on the red planet".
When InSight entered the atmosphere the lander itself will be protected by its heat shield. Dozens of operations and thousands of lines of code were pre-programmed into the machinery and memory of the spacecraft and by all accounts they executed perfectly.
The team at Aerojet Rocketdyne has been watching the progress of the mission anxiously since the launch vehicle sent the spacecraft on its way, through its long flight from Earth to Mars, and then in the final, terrifying moments as the craft approached the surface of the red planet. NASA says we should expect data back from the experiments around March 2019.
The twin "Cubesats" tagging along for the flight to Mars represented the first deep-space use of a miniature satellite technology that space engineers see as a promising low-priced alternative to some larger, more complex vehicles.

Others don't care about the content of her discussion, they just know they don't like the way she's voicing her opinion. Ivanka Trump voiced her opinions during an interview on Wednesday morning, and Twitter doesn't want to hear it.
Maurizio Sarri was left puzzled by his team's character and attitude after the result. "This is Chelsea . We can not look at City". "He has been, many times, angrier when we've won", the defender told reporters.

Unlimited calls and texts on Project Fi cost just $20 per month, and mobile data costs just $10 per gigabyte (GB). This gets you better, faster, less-congested coverage than you would get from any single one of these carriers.
She added: "Exactly how it might be done, if he takes it up, would be a matter for the broadcasters to determine". The SNP's depute leader Keith Brown has also written to Sky News urging it to push for a "representative" debate.
The president also sent a clear message to the people in the caravans who still believe they might make it into the United States. During a televised debate nine days after the video was publicized, she apologized to "anyone that was offended by my comments".
US Could Tariff iPhones and Laptops Imported from China
He added that there will also be discussion around the United States emerging as "the dominant energy power in the world today". Trump's advice to all businesses that manufacture is to "build factories in the United States and to make the product here".
