Space Craft Lands On Mars
After a six-month, 300 million-mile journey, a Nasa space craft has successfully landed on Mars .
The InSight lander is carrying millions of pounds of Space Agency kit which will measure seismic waves.
It's already sent its first images home - showing a flat surface all the way to the horizon.

InSight’s view is a flat, smooth expanse called Elysium Planitia, but its workspace is below the surface, where it will study Mars’ deep interior. pic.twitter.com/3EU70jXQJw
This is the moment Mission Control announced the landing...wait for it...

Its new home is Elysium Planitia, a still, flat region where it’s set to study seismic waves and heat deep below the surface of the Red Planet for a planned two-year mission. Learn more: https://t.co/fIPATUugFo pic.twitter.com/j0hXTjhV6I
