Yesterday was a great day for NASA! The NASA InSight spacecraft landed on Mars. The spacecraft was powered by United Launch Alliance’s (ULA) Atlas V rocket that was made in Alabama. If you have not seen it yet, you can watch the entire mission of landing the spacecraft on Mars below.
Here’s a shorter clip.
The moment was very tense waiting for a touchdown confirmation.
And I loved the special handshake during the celebration!
This was the very first picture from the spacecraft on Mars!
And here is a better picture after the dust settled.
And this photo was from the spacecraft leaving Mars after dropping off the NASA InSight.
And Alabama’s Marshall Space Flight Center was watching a cheering!
Congrats to NASA, I hope we learn a lot about Mars!
