Wait, what? Are you comparing Mars to a candy bar? Nee, a Mars Bar? Maaaaybe. Insight on Insight! But we’ll be talking about Insight, which should be landing on Mars on Monday, November 26th, 2018. First you heard of it? Well, frankly, we had a reminder from The Oatmeal (and he has a fantastic comic about it involving a mole). Want to watch? Maybe you can clear some time out this Monday! And NASA can help – check out https://mars.nasa.gov/insight/timeline/landing/watch-in-person/ And if you want to see the pictures of Venus that LD was talking about?
