*Abstract: *Seismology has been an important tool in the understanding of
Earth, and its internal structure and dynamics. Because seismology has
helped constrain crust thickness, size and state of the core, and assess
seismic hazards at the surface, seismometers have flown on planetary
missions. Fifty years ago, the first extraterrestrial seismometer was
installed on the Moon by Apollo astronauts. Soon after seismometers were
included on missions to Mars. In the past year, the Interior Exploration
using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) has
successful landed and deployed the first Martian seismometers onto the
surface. In this webinar I will discuss the heritage, goals, first results,
and the potential legacy of InSight.
