ISAE-SUPAERO Continues Its Involvement in the InSight Mission and Reveals the Results of Its Research From Planet Mars5.8.2021 11:24:00 EEST | Press release

Launched by NASA in May 2018, the InSight mission is pursuing the objective of studying the internal structure of the planet Mars using the SEIS seismometer developed by ISAE-SUPAERO. Three studies, published on July 23 in the journal Science, reveal, for the first time, an estimate of the size of the core, the thickness of the crust and the structure of the mantle of the red planet. Three of the co-authors, Raphaël Garcia, Mélanie Drilleau and Nicolas Compaire, are from ISAE-SUPAERO, and are collaborating on this major seismic exploration project, which represents a significant step in the understanding of the formation and thermal evolution of Mars. Before this mission, the internal structure of Mars was still poorly understood. The details of the planet's internal structure and the depth of the boundaries between crust, mantle and core were completely unknown. With the successful deployment of the SEIS experiment on the surface of Mars in early 2019, the scientists collected and ana
