Mars

Educator Conference: The InSight Mission – Quakes on Mars

When: Saturday, March 10, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Where: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California

Target Audience: Teachers for grades K-12 and informal educators (museums, science centers, after-school programs, etc.)

Overview: The next mission to Mars departs Earth in early May, arriving just after Thanksgiving of 2018. The Mars lander called InSight, which stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, will drill beneath the surface to investigate the Red Planet’s interior structure. The mission is designed to give scientists a better understanding of the evolution of rocky planets.

InSight, which is based on NASA’s successful Phoenix Mars lander design, will be equipped with a seismometer and a heat-flow probe to study Mars’ interior.

Join us at JPL to hear from the mission’s principal investigator and the Mars Program scientist, and discover ways to bring InSight science into classrooms, museums and after-school programs.
