Two small cube satellites that sailed on May 5 with NASA’s new Mars Inspector InSight have sent a small message to the world today; ‘Polo!’
On May 5, NASA sent two cubic satellites to the long journey in space with the new Mars Inspector InSight. Called the Wall-E and Eva, these two cubes are the biggest curiosity about satellites because they will not be able to continue in the toughest conditions of deep space, as no cube has been able to keep up with satellite radiation and similar conditions in previous tests.
This message, which shows that the project has progressed as planned so far and there is no trouble, is ‘Polo!’ It was. This word actually shows some kind of code and everything is okay, but there is a long journey to end in November at the front of InSight, Wall-E and Eva. So scientists in charge of the project are still excited and stressed.
If the expected success is achieved in the project and these two cube satellites work well in deep space, a very important step in space research will be taken. The completion of Wall-E and Eva’s duties will, in fact, lead to the use of fairly low-cost satellites in all future deep space exploration and faster data transmission. That’s why over the next few weeks, NASA officials will look at Wall-E and Eva rather than InSight.
