NASA's Mars Lander refuses to perish despite being expected to do so

Even though it was expected to die months ago, the resourceful tiny Mars lander is still going strong.

NASA has been anticipating the death of its InSight Mars lander for more than a year, but as Space.com writes, a string of fortunate events have kept the brave spacecraft alive.

However, by May, NASA had again postponed its death, this time stating that it would be over by the end of the summer or, if that didn't work out, by the end of 2022.

Chuck Scott, the project manager for InSight at CalTech and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, told Space.com that since [2021],
