Mars landing of InSight probe … success!

This must’ve been a tremendous relief for everyone involved.

NASA’s InSight landed safely on Mars on Monday afternoon, with scientists now hopeful they’ll get a below-the-surface look at the Red Planet.  …

“This never gets old,” said jubilant chief engineer Rob Manning. “What a relief. Fabulous, fabulous.” …

The InSight lander arrived on Mars’ surface by surviving what NASA called “seven minutes of terror” as its prized craft decelerated from 12,300 mph to 5 mph at landing.

Years to get the probe to Mars, $850 million investment, so whew! Glad the probe got down safely.
