Good news if you are planning a trip to Mars ̵
I hope to collect this data for the next two years so that researchers can compare the changes in time between the seasons and between the days. Time information is important to researchers as it allows them to allow the noise in the data they collect in earthquakes inside the planet using the InSight seismometer. The seismometer is sensitive to changes in air pressure and wind, so researchers need to allow these changes when they analyze their data.
For the rest of us, keeping up-to-date on Mars is just fun. "It gives you the feeling of visiting a strange place," said Don Banfield, head of the InSight Weather Team. "Mars has known atmospheric phenomena that are still quite different from those on Earth."
The weather on Mars was even colder than here on Earth over the last few weeks, ranging from 4 – 11 ° F to maximum healing. -138 to -140 ° F minimum. This is colder than the coldest temperature ever seen on Earth at Vostok Station, Antarctica, on July 21, 1983. The wind also blows a storm on Mars, reaching a top speed of 38 miles per hour that qualifies as a strong wind. For a visual representation of the weather, you can see 3-day Martian weather reports from the latest data collected by InSight:
The Mars Weather website will be regularly updated by NASA so you can follow the conditions of our beloved red planet.
