THE BIG SHOT

Sunday Mail (UK) - - Mail Box -

It looks like an im­age from Hol­ly­wood block­buster The Mar­tian… but this is a real-life photo of Ely­sium Plani­tia, the vast lava plain near the equa­tor of Mars. It was taken as Nasa’s InSight probe landed on the planet last week. Over the com­ing days, it’ll take more pic­tures and send them to Earth so sci­en­tists can de­cide where the probe should place its in­stru­ments to study the in­te­rior of Mars.
