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 photo from NASA’s InSight Mars lander just might be its last.
