We almost forgot about Mars after the buzz created by Curiosity Mars Rover settled down. But the folks at NASA seem to be busy with their next Mars Lander Project. NASA has decided to go further into Mars and find more of her hidden secrets. NASA plans to launch a new mission called the InSight lander mission (InSight stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport). It will be the successor to the highly successful Phoenix Lander .Large amount of components from Phoenix is being reused as a cost reduction measure.
InSight’s predecessors had found high amount of methane content in Martian atmosphere which could be a possible sign for the presence of bacterial organisms within Mars’s crust. If Insight find out any clue about such bacterial existence on Mars, then it could be the biggest discovery in the history of mankind. InSight is the most anticipated mars mission ever and one which all mankind will be eagerly watching.
