NASA ’s InSight Lander Is About to Give Mars its First Health Checkup in 4.5 Billion Years
When it comes to Mars, we’ve all gotten spoiled. Back in 1976, it was huge news when Viking 1 and 2 became the first spacecraft to land on the Red Planet.

A spacecraft that lands and then just sits there is something of a cosmic meh. At 7:05 AM ET on May 5, however, that may change as NASA launches the Mars InSight lander, a sit-there ship that will explore a part of the planet no other spacecraft has studied in detail: its interior.
