NASA's InSight Lander May Have Detected First Marsquake

According to a report by Gizmodo, NASA's InSight lander may have detected its first marsquake using its ultra-sensitive seismometer.

In December of 2018 Insight successfully deployed its Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure instrument, followed by the deployment of its protective dome in February.

NASA reportedly said that it is still analyzing data from an April 6th, 2019 event that, if confirmed, may be the first geologically induced tremor ever detected on another planet.
