Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight)

July 1, 2020. InSight Release 5 includes raw and calibrated data from January 1 through March 31, 2020, for the APSS/TWINS/PS suite, IDC, ICC, IDA, IFG, RAD, RISE, and SEIS. Data from the HP3 experiment will be in a later release.  

The InSight Lander landed on Mars and began operations on November 26, 2018. Information about the mission and its science instruments is in the InSight Document Bundle below.

Science data from InSight's suite of instruments will be released by PDS quarterly. See the complete release schedule below.

Online Tools

MSL ANB  InSight Analyst's Notebook  - This Geosciences Node tool provides access to InSight data in the context of mission operations -- by sol, instrument, and other criteria.
  PDS Image Atlas - The Planetary Image Atlas enables searching tens of millions of images by their PDS label content and additional metadata.
  JPL Planetary PhotoJournal - The Photojournal is the interface to the Planetary Image Archive (PIA) which holds thousands of high-resolution images made available to the public from data returned by various JPL missions.
