According to a statement made by NASA, 676 thousand 773 people in the first place in the number of reservations, China's 262 thousand 752 people in second place and 138 thousand 889 people in third place.



In the framework of NASA's InSight discovery program, it is aimed to get a deeper knowledge of the rocky planets in both the Mars and the Solar System by studying the Mars ridges for 720 days by landing near the Mars equator.
