At 13:00:05 LMST, InSight local mean solar time, the Instrument Context Camera (ICC) took this panoramic picture in which you can see that MOLE has now completely sunk into the ground.
Now begins the hard part of MOLE’s work, because from now on InSight’s robotic arm will not be able to help MOLE pushing it as it did in the last days.
Fingers crossed that MOLE can reach a sufficient depth to do the job for which it was designed, which is to analyze the geothermal gradient of Mars to better study the nature of its interior.
To show colors more similar to what the human eye would see, I subjected the image to white balance and a slight increase in microcontrast and color saturation.
