InSight Space Module is ready to face the calls "Seven minutes of terror" even before landing Mars, "one of the most intense parts of my mission," says the device in twitter, where he spent months, was the first person to be the vicissitudes of his long journey.

"Tomorrow is the big day," "I'll be home in 24 hours," wrote Insigh last night to his 80,000 followers, inviting him to follow his last terrestrial report on what he expects "learn mars" and how cleverly he prepares himself before the imminent landing.

It is foreseen that Insight mission from GODMOTHER you arrive at Mars today, when you will travel within six months the distance separating the red planet from Earth. "Seven minutes of terror" are the most delicate of the mission, when it crosses almost the entire atmosphere 20,000 kilometers per hour and at that point he must reduce his speed to just five kilometers in order to rest safely on the Martian surface.

It is a process that can be described as anything but easy. In fact, the Schiaparelli module of the project ExoMars did not go beyond that complicated phase and was destroyed against the red planet in October 2017. GODMOTHER wanted to bring space to space in social networks, a way to bring mission and science closer to the general public who will be able to pursue a dangerous live landing even in the New York City market. Times Square.

But also wanting to reach the final destination: "#Thanks come to you, we left the Earth 200 days ago and now are only five days of landing on Mars," tweeted the device on the 21st, next to a GIF in the one who has seen a recreation of his landing. Once in Mars, if everything goes well, InSight has a long activity before analyzing the "heart" of the second smaller planet in the Solar System, after Mercury.

So far, missions on Mars captured surface images, studied rocks, dug into the ground, and searched for clues about water flowing once but never been investigated inside.

The space module will thus listen to the interior of the planet for what will use a mechanical excavator that will extend five meters deep, where it will measure the internal temperature and will follow any internal motion with a seismograph.
