The latest mission of the people on the earth to reach mars was concluded on Monday and has got experts of NASA and the interested public to get the hold on their breath for the same collection. The Insight spacecraft of NASA is due to mars, the red planet which has been travelling for the last six months. But the journey came along to be very long. There were a lot of moments of immense risk. The actual landing on Mars was very difficult by Insight which was critical and has been completed perfectly. The spacecraft might have to be decelerated to zero from 12300 mph in about 6 minutes. It deployed a parachute which fires its 12 descent engines.
They finally landed after that. All of this was quite hard and the strong gravitational pull by mars and the wispy atmosphere of the planet were the reasons which caused the difficulty.
Other than this, the afternoon of Monday made it the first time when NASA in six years landed for the first time or even attempted for the first time so that the stakes have gone quite higher.

In comparison to other countries, the United States has shown a tremendous record in handling the landing on Mars in forty years for about seven times impressively. They have failed just once. Overall, the success rate of the earth is around forty percent.

The odds have always been in favour of NASA. However, it will ensure a lot less time for some time more until the world will actually find out about if the landing is successful or not. There was also a communication delay for several minutes which came between the lander and the earth which neither missed control and not the observers which were standing in the public.
This means that the NASA was not able to know where or not there was the successful landing of Insight on the surface of the mars after the attempt on landing had taken place.
Our Mars Odyssey orbiter phoned home, relaying news from @NASAInSight indicating its solar panels are open & collecting sunlight on the Martian surface.

If the mission of the Insight becomes successful and the mission becomes positive, the objective of the Insight will be to study the interior of the planet of Mars and will gather information about the same. They will collect major information about the insides of this planet that we suppose is going to be the future of planet of the people of the earth.
They are going to study the major signs and symptoms that the planet. The study will also include the studying of the vital signs of the planet and include further discussion about its pulse, and even the temperature both on the insides and the outsides.

According to NASA, if people of the earth are seeing a future on that planet, then this type of information is very important and needs to be collected and processed sooner.
The lander is going to stay at the same place where it landed, however, they are going to install a robotic arm which will make a hole in the planet and do the research.
