It also has two color cameras on board. One is the Instrument Deployment Camera (or IDC) on one segment of the nearly two-meter long robot arm, which takes detailed images of the area around InSight to help select where the various scientific instruments would be placed. The other is the Instrument Context Camera (ICC) which is located under the flat deck of InSight, and has a wider field of view to (can you guess, from the name?) provide more context for where the instruments are placed.
InSight has been measuring away since the instruments were deployed. The heat probe has hit a snag (or, literally, a rock), but the seismometer has been detecting quakes.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
