Mars, 20.47 hours: InSight landed on the Marsa ground after six months of trip. The new NASA mission has just been carried out and a new success of the space agency has become. We reached another step in the history of humanity when the InSight stock launched on May 5, returned to "stop driving" to join completely completely different. It is incredible what human ability can do, and it is equally surprising to see how the economic resources invested in this field of research will be used deeply in the future. And the most extraordinary thing is to see how all, even separated by different ideologies and cultures, have met to see this memorable event. For a few moments the whole world was united in the party. As Piergiorgio Odifreddi said: "There are no scientific wars, nor were there ever, because science is one."
