The other day, NASA's InSight landed safely on Mars, and there was much rejoicing. It was pretty emotional watching all the people involved celebrate when they got confirmation that InSight has arrived on Martian soil: there was a lot of hard work involved! If you haven't heard exactly why this particular mission is so cool, the Oatmeal has this cute and clever explanation.

But now, you don't have to be a scientist or mathematician to help a craft land on Mars: this game lets you try it yourself. Happy time wasting!
