Yesterday began the operations to pick up the last instrument to be deposited on the Martian surface.
In this photo taken by the Instrument Deployment Camera (IDC) at 15:03:18 LMST, we can see the robotic arm of InSight while it is about to take the probe HP3 to measure the flow of heat coming from the interior of the planet.
Once deposited the probe will have to go about 5 meters deep, hoping not to encounter layers of rock too hard to be drilled.
To show colors more similar to what the human eye would see, I subjected the image to white balance.
