NASA rover takes photo of robot sent to Mars in 2018; look at the picture

US space agency (NASA) published on his account on X (old Twitter) Image taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter InSight Lander spacecraft in Mars. On the social network, the agency mocked users and asked if they could find it in the Martian dust environment.

The agency says that the speed at which dust accumulates on the robot helps estimate the age of other changes on the surface of the Red Planet.

Insight Lander was the first robot sent to Mars to conduct an in-depth study of the planet's internal structures, crust, mantle, and core. The goal was to understand the processes that formed rocky planets more than 4 billion years ago. The robot was launched in May 2018, and its mission ended in December 2022.

According to the University of Arizona, the Insight Lander landed in a very dusty area and was covered with so much dust that it became difficult to distinguish it, as in the image published by NASA. InSight's landing itself blew up dust from a larger area.

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter was launched in August 2005 with the aim of searching for evidence of the existence of… water On the surface of Mars for long periods of time.

While other missions to Mars have provided evidence that water once roamed the surface of Mars, it remains a mystery whether the resource has been around long enough to make the environment habitable.
