EST, when NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter will be in position to relay data to Earth. Since 1964, the United States has now launched 23 robotic spacecraft to the red planet at a cost of more than $20 billion in an evolving campaign to map out the red planet's surface, determine the role of water in its ...
The $800 million USD InSight lander was launched earlier this year from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Launching a probe to Mars took place on 5 may, 2018 with the help of the rocket Atlas V. 30 seconds after deployment of the chute, the InSight lander will drop its heat shield and activate its radar. There are various factors that NASA needed to consider while choosing an arrival site.

As thousands of National Guard troops, law enforcement officers and medical teams spread out, the governor pleaded with people in the devastated areas to stay away because of hazards such as fallen trees and power lines.
