Congratulations to the InSight team on a successful landing! We'll discuss the remainder of the mission here. smile.gif

At nearly 20 feet/6m, InSight should look quite interesting to HiRISE.

Confirmation the solar panels have deployed.
Also the panels are slightly bigger and stronger than Phoenix's were.

It should. Phoenix was unmistakeable even as the dust began to settle on her.

Are we seeing reflections in the plates of the large structure on the left? It might be handy having some mirrored surfaces to look around corners.

Took a stab at cleaning up the MarCO-B cubesat departure image of Mars

And with the fisheye effect removed:

I think I've managed to ID major landmarks, but am uncertain.

Ok Phil, how long before you triangulate Insight based on that large rock in the distance? biggrin.gif

I got similar results. Good news is - this image was heavily JPG compressed to get on the ground quick. A raw uncompressed version should be down....hopefully....tomorrow. I think Mars should look a LOT better without JPGification. Hopefully smile.gif

Awesome. Something I've been curious about - was this the only planned image during the flyby, or will there be others as well?

Great news! smile.gif


I'm looking forward to the MRO images of the chute & backshell on the surface, and hopefully the heat shield as well. Always interesting to see how those ended up.

Should be a few more - not many - but a couple on the way in and a couple on the way out. A few from MarCO A as well ( this is from B )

So, simple question, how many images are planned to be taken by the ICC and IDC during Sols 0-2?

Emily says in her "What to Expect" article at the Planetary Society ...

Mars Insight Landing Preview

... that the Cruise Stage wreckage will impact up-range (east) of the landing site.
Given the thin atmosphere and high altitude of the area, might we expect some components to survive entry and make it down to the surface?
