​​Things have run pretty smoothly for NASA’s Mars Insight lander so far, safely touching down on the Red Planet. But mission control is now taking pause after these drilling operations ground to a halt, with the probe seemingly snagged on some hardened material beneath the surface.​​​Things have run pretty smoothly for NASA’s Mars Insight lander so far, safely touching down on the Red Planet.
