On Monday, NASA's InSight spacecraft arrived on Mars, which left Earth last May and traveled seven months in space.
InSight will have as mission the travel the red planet and enter the depths, in order to determine how the celestial bodies of rocky surfaces, such as the Earth or the Moon, were formed.
A few minutes after his arrival on the mainland, the spacecraft sent its first image, in which you could not see much of Mars. "My first image on Mars. The coverage of my lenses has not yet come out, but I had to show the first glance at my new home"They wrote on their Twitter account.
