The Launch of another large-scale missions to study the red Planet has been delayed for more than two years in connection with defects of some components of the basic scientific instrument of the spacecraft Mars InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations geodesy is and Heat Transport). Initially the launch mission was scheduled in March next year, however, a constant leak in the vacuum system of seismograph Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) makes it impossible to use this instrument and spacecraft Mars InSight was transported to air force base Vandenberg in the place of its Assembly in Denver, which manages the Lockheed Martin company, for the elimination of detected faults.
