Mars Insight

Mars InSight Lander

InSight, short for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, is a Mars lander designed to give the Red Planet its first thorough checkup since it formed 4.5 billion years ago. It is the first outer space robotic explorer to study in-depth the "inner space" of Mars: its crust, mantle, and core.

InSight is taking daily weather measurements (temperature, wind, pressure) on the surface of Mars at Elysium Planitia, a flat, smooth plain near Mars’ equator. Look below to see what the weather is like on Mars right now!

Tesla Roadster

SpaceX Tesla Roadster

On February 6, 2018 SapceX launched their experimental Falcon Heavy rocket into space. It contained a dummy payload - a Tesla Roadster with a spacesuit called Starman. This launch was considered extremely risky, so they sent this dummy payload instead of a real payload that could cost millions of dollars or more and be too expensive to risk on an experimental flight.

Where is Roadster? is tracking the location of the Tesla Roadster as it travels through the solar system. Baring any unforeseen interactions with other objects in space, it should orbit the Sun for the next billion years and more. Visit the website and take a look to see where it is right now!
