The Insight Lander


IMO everyone should consider this lander and the landing itself to be a roaring success.  Perhaps you think the whole space exploration thing to be a waste of time, money and talent.  I do not.  I consider the funds to be well spent as seed money for future benefits as many spinoffs of the space programs have proven to be so far.

I watched the landing coverage.  It was thrilling and inspirational.  It was perfection disguised as a flawed human enterprise.  The lander itself is a Martian geology platform loaded with seismic measurement instruments and the like.  I have no idea what all the little gadgets are around the main lander.  If anyone can tell us, please do so.  pl
