Months after lift off, the NASA InSight spacecraft successfully landed on Mars. There was a perfect landing.
Quoted by NASA officials, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory says the Mars mission streaked into the planet's atmosphere at 12-thousand miles per hour, and slowed by retro rockets and a giant parachute helped its 77-mile descent to the ground. The Insight lander will monitor seismic activity drill 16-feet underground, to give scientists a better understanding of how Mars evolved.
Marvin the martian was obviously not a fan of Earth.
"We successfully landed on Mars for the eighth time in human history,"
