Philippe Lognonné: Professor in Geophysics and Planetary Science, University of
Paris Diderot - Principal investigator, SEIS instrument on InSight (NASA), introduces the Mars insight mission and its scientific objectives. What lurks beneath Mars’ surface? How did the rocky, Red Planet form? What can Mars teach us about our own planet Earth? First answers are now available thanks to Mars lander, the Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy, and Heat Transport, also called InSight. With its seismometer and heat probe instruments, InSight investigates the deep dynamics of Mars, helping scientists discovering what lies within its core and we can learn more about how rocky bodies form throughout the Solar System.
The STEM activitiés using data from SEIS allowed teachers to explain better sismology to their students.
You can find these activities in the bloc called "STEM activities" in the homepage.
