May 2023 - InSight End of Mission: Our Time on Mars
Time: 7 p.m. PDT (10 p.m. EDT; 0300 UTC)
The InSight Mission to Mars began its journey to the red planet in May 2018. Upon its arrival in November of that year, InSight began an ambitious mission to reveal the internal structure of Mars. The lander detected over 1000 Mars seismic events, studied the Martian weather, and even found magnetic “ghosts” from an old electrical field. The mission ended 4 years after it began, when the solar panels finally succumbed to the dust deposition that prevented them from generating power.
