 Threat to NASA mission on Mars has passed

NASA scientists breathed a sigh of relief when a powerful storm on Mars subsided that threatened to derail their mission. It is reported by Space. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter recorded a powerful storm a month ago, which, as scientists feared, could damage the equipment. Similar cases have already happened. For example, 4 years ago, a storm caused the Opportunity rover to stop functioning. After the current storm, scientists came to the conclusion that the InSight spacecraft will still be able to send new data on the seismic activity of Mars.
