on 23 may release In this image done, the InSight lander can be seen covered with dust. In the past, NASA had told that the solar-powered Insight lander is now able to generate very little electricity. Initially, the lander used to power the electric oven for an hour and 40 minutes. Now this time has come down to 10 minutes.
Since landing on Mars in 2018, the InSight lander has recorded more than 1,300 earthquakes there. Recently, it recorded the largest earthquake ever recorded on Mars, which measured 5 in magnitude. This will be NASA’s second Mars lander, which has been lost in the dust and may soon be ruined.
The space agency had also told that it would continue to use the seismometer of this spacecraft until its power ran out in July. NASA has told that flight controllers will monitor InSight until the end of this year before shutting everything down. In such a situation, it should be assumed that Insight Lander will not be able to provide service for the whole year. Altogether this mission lasted about three years, it can be said.
There is no system to clean the dust in Insight Lander. This lander depended on strong winds to clear the dust accumulated on it. Last year, engineers had tried to remove sand from the panels through sprinkling.
However, with its last selfie, the Insight lander is ready to say goodbye to the world. The device may stop working by summer. NASA is impressed with this mission. In the past, he said in a press conference that the Insight lander exceeded our expectations on Mars.
