Enterprise Mission Imaging Team LIVE with Richard C. Hoagland
Tonight, we will explore NASA's latest unmanned mission to Mars -- ironically, named "InSight" -- as well as NASA's planned landing tomorrow (Monday -- December 3) of its Osiris-Rex unmanned spacecraft on the tiny asteroid, "Bennu."
Last Monday (Nov 26) the InSight spacecraft successfully touched down on one of the "flattest, safest and dullest places on Mars (as described by one of our Imaging Team members) ... in order to drill beneath the Martian surface for the first time (to measure any ancient heat fow still coming from the core of Mars ...), and to place the first planetary seismometer directly on Mars' surface (to measure any "Marsquakes" triggered by that deep internal heat).
In actuality, InSight seems to have landed (again!) in the mddle of (wait for it)--
An ancient Martian City!
And, Osiris-rex appears to have rendezvoued NOT with any ordinary "asteroid" ... but with an ancient, highly-eroded version of a "Borg Cube!"
