insight mars lander5

GMS Students really are out of this world! Pictured are GMS students with their "Boarding Passes" to Mars! These students will have their names etched on to a silicon chip that will be affixed to the InSight Mars Lander. InSight, which is short for "Interior Exploration Using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy, and Heat Transport" will study Mar's interior to gain a better understanding of the processes that helped shape rocky planets. The Insight is scheduled to launch in May 2018.
