    Teachable Moments

    NASA’s InSight Mars lander was designed to get the first in-depth look at the “heart” of Mars. Dig into the mission with these "Teachable Moments" from NASA JPL's Education website.

    • InSight was the first interplanetary spacecraft to launch from the West Coast of the United States. Since it is small and relatively lightweight, its rocket could easily accommodate getting it into orbit without the help of Earth’s momentum.

    • InSight's landing provided a good opportunity for students to learn about the mission.
