Press Release: CNES and NASA on Mars - SEIS seismometer for InSight mission delivered to Toulouse Space Centre

Monday 20 July, the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP1) and contractor Sodern delivered the SEIS Mars seismometer to CNES. SEIS is a titanium sphere housing three very-broad-band seismic sensors that form the core of the instrument. Once on the surface of Mars, these miniaturized sensors packed with technology will detect even the smallest seismic waves to determine if there is any seismic activity on the Red Planet. SEIS is the result of a close 10-year collaboration between CNES and IPGP that is set to depart on NASA’s InSight mission to Mars on 4 March 2016.
