This may be the last Mars photo from NASA’s InSight lander

By now, it’s a familiar view of Mars: A distant horizon strewn with rocks while, up close, a domed seismometer, a robotic arm and other instruments sit covered in red dust. But this view from a NASA lander just might be its last. 

The photo is from NASA’s InSight Mars lander, which for months has been starved of power as its solar arrays get increasingly caked with Martian dust. Soon, the lander won’t have enough power to snap selfies on Mars, let alone phone home.
