NASA’s Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) lander successfully touched down on the Red Planet after an almost seven-month, 300-million-mile (458-million-kilometer) journey from Earth. This is the post landing news briefing at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
