I think this is a very big deal. NASA scientists are celebrating now that their latest probe yesterday landed safely on Mars. They've already received a photo of the Martian soil from the Insight lander. 24/7 Metro News reports that NASA scientists say it shows Insight is resting on a very level patch of ground and the probe should give us new insight into the Martian landscape.
I am always bowled over by the engineering precision that is necessary to have a successful space mission. American ingenuity is still alive and well, and American know-how comes through again. We should all be proud of this Mars Mission.
