NASA’s InSight lander, which is on its last legs went through a drop in power generated by its solar panel recently because of a continent-sized dust storm that is swirling over Mars’ southern hemisphere.
The storm was first observed on September 21 this year by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and is roughly 3,500 kilometers away from the lander. Initially, it had little impact on InSight. The skies are darkening a bit here, but I’m okay for now.
