The German Aerospace Center (DLR) developed and built an instrument to fly on NASA's InSight mission that will measure the heat coming out of the interior of Mars. The instrument's principal investigator, Tilman Spohn, is looking forward to studying the internal heat of the mysterious Red Planet.

Landing in November 2018, NASA's InSight will probe beneath the surface of Mars, study the planet's interior and shed light on how rocky planets - inside and outside our solar system - form.
