NASA Continues Mars Exploration

The next Chapter in Space Exploration began yesterday when NASA’s InSight lander made it to Mars, but it’ll be a while before the robot is ready to start its science work. The lander will begin probing the Red Planet’s interior in unprecedented detail — a few months from now. The lander’s surface mission is scheduled to run for one Mars year, which is nearly two Earth years. It’ll probably take the lander about that long to gather enough data to address its main mission goals. Below find a link to the New York Times Interactive Page that offers amazing perspective through Augmented Reality. Take a look its very cool!
