In Science and Space: Mars has a thin atmosphere and is close to the solar system’s asteroid belt, so it is much more susceptible to being hit by rocks from space than Earth.

Researchers explained Monday how InSight detected seismic and acoustic waves when four meteorites hit its surface, and then calculated the locations of craters left by the meteorites.

Scientists are trying to more fully understand this trait of Martians with the help of NASA’s InSight robotic lander.

Researchers used observations from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in space to confirm the location of the crater.

Three-legged InSight (its name stands for internal survey using seismic surveys, geodesy, and heat transport) was discovered in 2018 on Elysium, a vast and relatively flat plain north of Mars’ equator. landed on the plains.

“The moon is also a target for future meteorite impact detection,” says Rafael Garcia, planetary scientist and first author of the study at the ISAE-SUPAERO Aerospace Institute at the University of Toulouse. “It could be the same sensor, because InSight’s alternate sensor is now integrated with the Farside Seismic Suite instrument for a flight to the moon in 2025.”
