By: Katie Hutnan

As we all know, NASA likes to send ships and things to planets, but never has NASA sent a podcast to a planet! NASA has launched a lander called the “InSight”. The InSight is a ship heading to Mars. Its team is trying to land it successfully on the planet.

On its millions of miles journey, the InSight has a podcast tracking the mission. The name of the podcast is “On A Mission”. “On A Mission” is eight episodes long and in each episode, gives and interview about each member of the InSight team. The InSight team is actually at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

InSight is actually an acronym for, Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport. The mission of this lander is to find out what the Mars crust is like.

This is related to engineering because NASA is going to find out more about Mars crust with new and advanced technology.
