NASA’s faltering Mars probe feels the shock waves from an explosive meteor collision with ice

Christmas came a day earlier for a lone geologist stationed on the Red Planet.

NASA agency insight Task touched down Mars in November 2018 to look inside the planet, mapping its layers and fault lines. And on December 24, 2021, the probe made a remarkable discovery, picking up seismic waves from a large meteorite impact. Images taken from orbit made the signal even more interesting, because scientists linked the seismic discovery to the sight of a new large crater.
