HERE’S the first clear im­age of Mars taken by NASA’s In­Sight lan­der, which ar­rived at the Red Planet last week.

The im­age shows part of the Ely­sium Plani­tia, where the lan­der ar­rived. The snap was taken us­ing a robotic arm-mounted cam­era. It was sent from the Mar­tian sur­face to the Odyssey space­craft, which is or­bit­ing Mars, and from there it was sent to Earth, some 146 mil­lion kilo­me­tres away.
