NASA’s InSight probe has safely landed on Mars, but the achievement sparked an epic celebration at the space organisation’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is now going viral. After InSight survived “seven minutes of terror” to touch down safely, engineers and scientists broke out into celebrations with hugs, a celebratory handshake with fist bumps, and dabs!
It stood out also due to the absolute silence of scientists and engineers inside Mission Control, even after the successful landing.
Watch the moment here:
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

After over six months of travelling through space and covering a journey of more than 300 million miles, NASA’s Mars science lander InSight touched down safely on the surface of the red planet.
Using the lander, NASA plans to study the processes that shaped the rocky planets of the solar system. By using sophisticated geophysical instruments, InSight will address fundamental questions about the formation of Earth-like planets by detecting the fingerprints of those processes buried deep within the interior of Mars, the space agency says.
