The mission control team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory near Los Angeles conducted a final adjustment to the InSight's flight path yesterday to manoeuvre the spacecraft closer toward its entry point over Mars.
The InSight spacecraft, which took off from California almost six months ago, finally made its landing on the surface of Mars Monday.
A carefully orchestrated sequence - already fully preprogrammed on board the spacecraft - takes place over the next several minutes, coined "six and a half minutes of terror".
The team will check to make sure the instruments can be deployed safely, even if there are rocks nearby or InSight lands at an angle. Having launched on May 5, 2018 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California as it enters the atmosphere of Mars, InSight will be traveling at 14,100 miles per hour. Four minutes later, it will deploy a parachute to slow itself. An inquiry completed a year ago concluded that onboard computer software errors led to data conflicts, causing the probe to strike Mars at high speed.
There will be landing commentary and news briefings from scientists and engineers.
You can expect to see a lot of interviews and background videos during the early part of the coverage, leading up to shots of anxious engineers milling around at JPL's Mission Control as the appointed time nears.
InSight is scheduled to reach the surface of Mars approximately 3 p.m. EST November 26, and you can watch the event live on NASA Television, the NASA website as well as their official social media platforms.
Bringing live coverage from 91 million miles away will not be easy. If InSight comes into too shallow, the spacecraft could skip off the thin atmosphere, and an entry angle that is too steep would produce too much thermal heating.
Onboard the vessel are a number of intricate instruments that NASA hopes will help uncover answers to Mars mysteries.
There are two almost identical MarCO spacecraft that launched with InSight last May, and have been trailing the probe on its flight to Mars. The satellite also shot back a quick photo from Mars' surface. However, dust storms are common in this area. Exactly what steps is the lander going to have to take, all on its own, with no direct guidance from home, even if something were to go wrong?
"Landing on Mars is one of the hardest single jobs that people have to do in planetary exploration", InSight's lead scientist, Bruce Banerdt, said before the landing.
"InSight is a mission to Mars, but it's much, much more than a Mars mission". On Monday afternoon, two CubeSats that were launched with InSight, MarCO-A and -B, will relay data about the landing in real-time.
The $1 billion global effort calls for the robotic geologist to explore Mars' mysterious interior. The self-hammering mole will burrow 16 feet down to measure the planet's internal heat, while the seismometer listens for possible quakes. The lander will be broadcasting information during entry, descent and landing in the UHF band to NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which can not simultaneously receive in one band and transmit in another.
