NASA's InSight passes halfway to Mars, instruments check in
As of Aug. 20, the spacecraft had covered 172 million miles (277 million kilometers) since its launch 107 days ago. In another 98 days, it will travel another 129 million miles (208 million kilometers) and touch down in Mars' Elysium Planitia region, where it will be the first mission to study the Red Planet's deep interior.
If all goes as planned, the camera will take the first image of Elysium Planitia minutes after InSight touches down on Mars.
