Goodbye InSight Lander

The InSight lander, which has spent over four years carrying out science on the Martian surface, may have finally died due to a lack of solar power. InSight’s battery has slowly been draining since it arrived on Mars. Dust blown about the Red Planet by gusty winds clung to the lander’s solar panels, reducing the amount of solar energy they could take in. InSight preemptively predicted its death, which is not at all sad. I’m somehow crying over a robot.
