Postcard From the Red Planet



NASA's InSight rover landed on Mars on November 26 and immediately began snapping selfies. This shot features the Elysium Planitia, a lava plain near the Martian equator. InSight left Earth on May 5 and traveled 301 million miles in six and a half months. The rover will now collect data about the formation of Mars by drilling deep into the red planet's crust.
