Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.


On 5th May 2018 on a west coast Californian early mid-morning, is the launch from Space Launch Complex three at Vandenberg Air Force Base… Launching at 0405 Hours Pacific Day Time… This launch is the first for the west coast to launch the Interplanetary Missions, due to the majority is launched from the East Coast at Cape Canaveral launch complexes facilities……

Launching InSight is ULA- United Launch Alliance Atlas V 401 Configuration, in which this launch carrier rocket  with a four meter diameter payload flaring in which housing  NASA’s InSight  -Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport….. During the process of the launch after separation in which there are three payloads, InSight also it’s Cube Satellites support services that’s attached to the secondary stage of the Atlas V configuration…

Launching from Launch Complex three, in a very Californian misty morning… in which the counting down towards the launch without any issues… powering up the launch is the Mightily RD AMROSS RD-180 engine also providing the secondary Stage is  the . Aerojet Rocketdyne provided the RL10C-1 engine … in which it’s been tradition that the Atlas V series carrier rockets have carried into towards Mars with its successive Martian rovers and satellites including Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity rovers as well as the MAVEN satellite…  among the payload in the centaur after section is the pair of launchers of the JPL- Jet Propulsion Laboratory Cube Satellites MarCO- The Mars Cube One Alpha and Beta in which to be the first to be flown in interplanetary , utilizing of the shelf technologies in which providing Data Telecommunications support in between the MRO- Martian Reconnaissance Orbiter … having be launched from the lower ATLAS v Centaur carrier staging bulk head. Both make their independent travelling paths towards Mars in which providing communications support..

 Insight is a stationary probe that’s Phoenix heritage design to study on Martian Quakes on The planet Mars the Fourth Rocky planet in the Sol-Solar System in which to study the Martian’s Interior also its structure with its various sensors… in which when it lands on the design landing position it begins to transport from is instruments array, it begins studying the Martian sub surface in which helps to understand the early planetary formation.. In which CNES-  SEIS- Seismic Experiment for interior Structure, DLR- HP cube – Heat Flow and Physical Properties Pack   in which measures the thermal conductivity of Mars..
