InSight Lander is on Mars!

Intact and functioning, so far.
After seven months of traveling through space, the NASA InSight mission has landed on Mars. A few minutes later, InSight sent the official "beep" to NASA to signal that it was alive and well, including a photo of the Martian surface where it landed.
Good work, guys!

WOOHOO!

One of the few things left that still gets me excited.

Onward to the stars ...

If we go extinct, at least explorers from elsewhere may find our probes on Mars, and the landers on the Moon to show we existed.

I wonder if it will last as long as the first two? Or that far past it's expected failure date?
