NASA’s latest Mars mission touched down roughly a year ago. Tasked with detecting even the slightest tremor in the planet’s crust, tracking its weather 24.5 hours a day, and sensing its internal temperature, InSight is allowing us to explore Mars like never before.

Let’s take a look at what InSight has shown us so far, and what it could reveal to us about our second favourite terrestrial planet.
