Celebrate The NASA InSight Spacecraft Landing On Mars


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!
