- Nature Khabar
As many as 2,636 Nepali citizens have booked their ticket to Mars through Nasa's inisigh (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) mission which has been scheduled for launch on May 5, 2018.
Nasa conveyed that those who registered their names were provided with an online ‘boarding pass’ for the mission.
According to Nasa, “ By using sophisticated geophysical instruments, InSight will delve deep beneath the surface of Mars, detecting the fingerprints of the processes of terrestrial planet formation, as well as measuring the planet’s vital signs.”
The visitor’s names are being written on a silicon wafer microchip by an electron beam to form letters with lines on one-thousandth the diameter of a human hair.
A total of 24,29,807 people across the world have submitted their names for the mission.
