Have you ever seen a spacecraft spread its solar wings? @NASAInSight will need to perform the critical task of deploying its solar arrays to power the mission. We expect to get data confirmation this evening. About the #MarsLanding milestones: https://t.co/vnmkKY2MUs pic.twitter.com/3Wx1mvRFvD— NASA (@NASA) November 27, 2018
