   A daring mission to collect dust samples from a kilometer-wide space rock hurtling around the Sun is soon to reach a critical juncture, with mission scientists in Japan preparing to lower their Hayabusa 2 probe to the surface of the asteroid Ryugu. As part of this objective, the team will fire metal bullets into the asteroid's gravely surface, but not without having conducted a dress rehearsal first.

NASA puts a lid on InSight's Mars seismometer PDF Imprimare Email
Marţi, 05 Februarie 2019 17:46

    NASA's InSight lander continues to set up house on Mars and has now placed a domed shield over the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) instrument package that its robotic arm placed on the surface on December 19, 2018. After weeks of calibration and adjustment to the advanced seismometer, adding the Wind and Thermal Shield will both protect the instrument and greatly enhance its sensitivity and accuracy.

    According to NASA, the SEIS seismometer is a key instrument in the unmanned lander's mission to better understand the deep structure and dynamics of the Red Planet. However, the very sensitivity that makes device so valuable also makes it vulnerable. The Martian winds can shake the seismometer, blanking out its data with noise, as can the temperature variations that can vary as much as 170° F (94° C) per day, causing the components to stretch and contract and produce more noise.
