NASA's new Mars exploration slated for 2016, promises to be the most insightful research of the red's planet as it will be the first ever launch that will be committed to research the deepest corners of MARS.During the research the first seismometer will directly be placed on the surface of Mars to calculate the Martian quakes. This information will help researchers to know about details of the planet.

The launch will take place from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and NASA is looking for Volunteers to add their names to a silicon microchip that will be added to the cargo of its Insight MARS lander to the red planet.

This is, therefore the chance to have your name flown aboard InSight and it is made more lucrative by a “frequent flier” point system that is provided given by NASA to make sure that a person’s participation gets its due. This is just the first such initiative in the Journey to Mars and there are many more similar missions to come in the coming few years.
