InSight lander illustration (NASA) NASA officials said this week that the agency's InSight spacecraft is on track for a landing on Mars this Monday. The spacecraft is on course to land on Elysium Planitia at 2:54 pm EST (1954 GMT) Monday. Project officials said Wednesday that the spacecraft is in good health and on a trajectory so close to that planned for the spacecraft that a final trajectory correction maneuver may not be needed. The spacecraft is designed to study the interior of the planet with a seismometer and heat flow probe to understand its composition and structure.
