Insight  must place place its heat flow and physical properties packages (HP3) and  and seismic experiment for interior structure (SEIS) on the surface, in direct contact with mars in order to take the “vital signs” of mars.

Insight will start to collect some science data first week after landing. RISE, the rotation and interior Structure Experiment, begins collecting data a few days after landing
