The InSight mission, whose departure from Earth is scheduled for May, will be the first to study the interior of Mars.
The probe is expected to land in November in an area of Mars called Elysium Planitia (see https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elysium_Planitia ), where it will also place a seismometer and an instrument to measure the soil temperature at different depths.
During the two days of this conference, followable in streaming (see bottom of the article), will be exposed the various aspects and expectations of this important mission.
To get a taste I propose this conference of two years ago, shortly before they suspended the launch due to technical problems: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPwC04FuI4w
