InSight National Observation Service

National Observation Service

The NASA InSight mission deployed a geophysical observatory on the surface of Mars at the end of 2018, performing simultaneous seismic, geodetic and magnetic measurements. This National Observation Service is supported by the IPGP, together with several French laboratories and observatories (in particular the LPG and GEOAZUR).
