Heat flow in the Red Planet

DLR plan­e­tary re­searchers used 3D nu­mer­i­cal sim­u­la­tions to cal­cu­late pos­si­ble hotspots on the in­side of Mars. The In­Sight lan­der will de­posit a heat flow probe (HP3) and a seis­mome­ter (SEIS) on the sur­face of Mars, where they will con­duct heat flow and seis­mic mea­sure­ments.

DLR planetary researchers used 3D numerical simulations to calculate possible hotspots on the inside of Mars. The InSight lander will deposit a heat flow probe (HP3) and a seismometer (SEIS) on the surface of Mars, where they will conduct heat flow and seismic measurements.
