NASA’s sick Mars lander feels shockwaves from ice meteoroid impact

Christmas has come a day early for a lone geologist stationed on the Red Planet.

from NASA Insight the mission has landed March in November 2018 to peer into the planet’s interior, mapping its layers and fault lines. And on December 24, 2021, the lander made a remarkable detection, picking up seismic waves from a large meteoroid impact. Photos taken from orbit made the signal even more intriguing, as scientists linked seismic detection to the sight of a large, cool crater.
