    Monday 26 November at 20:54 CET, InSight (INterior exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) landed on Mars with the French SEIS seismometer (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure), the mission’s main instrument, in the western portion of Elysium Planitia. Launched on the night of 5 May from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, InSight is now all set to begin its two-year mission to probe the red planet’s deep interior and attempt to answer the question taxing the minds of planetologists everywhere: Mars may have been habitable, but did it ever actually support life?

    The first missions to reach the surface of Mars date back 40 years, but many mysteries still lie beneath its top layer of iron oxide. To delve deeper into the red planet, the InSight lander is carrying a system able to drill down to five metres and sound Mars’ surface over a radius of thousands of kilometres. Following its arrival on Mars, we talk about what we already know and what we hope to discover there with CNES’s Francis Rocard, head of Solar System Exploration programmes, and Philippe Laudet, SEIS project leader for InSight and head of the agency’s Astronomy and Astrophysics programme.
