The InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) mission landed in Elysium Planitia on Mars on 26 November 2018 and fully deployed its seismometer by the end of February 2019. The mission aims to detect, characterize and locate seismic activity on Mars, and to further constrain the internal structure, composition and dynamics of the planet. Here, we present seismometer data recorded until 30 September 2019, which reveal that Mars is seismically active… Expand

Seismic detection of the martian core
TLDR
A preliminary structure of Mars is provided that helps to constrain the different theories explaining the chemistry and internal dynamics of the planet and implies a martian mantle mineralogically similar to the terrestrial upper mantle and transition zone but differing from Earth by not having a bridgmanite-dominated lower mantle.

Upper mantle structure of Mars from InSight seismic data
TLDR
The seismic constraints with geodynamic models predict that, relative to the primitive mantle, the crust of Mars is more enriched in heat-producing elements by a factor of 13 to 20 and has a moderate-to-elevated surface heat flow. Expand

Thickness and structure of the martian crust from InSight seismic data
TLDR
The structure of the crust beneath the InSight landing site on Mars is determined using both marsquake recordings and the ambient wavefield by analyzing seismic phases that are reflected and converted at subsurface interfaces, finding that the observations are consistent with models with at least two and possibly three interfaces.
