InSight is on its way to Mars, moving away from Earth at a speed of 6,200 miles per hour (10,000 kilometers per hour). Mission navigators have been tracking the spacecraft almost continuously since launch. The team adjusts InSight's flight path several times during cruise to make sure that it is flying at the right speed and direction. Six such adjustments are planned during the almost seven-month trip to Mars, as are two back-ups. The first adjustment to InSight's flight path was completed on May 22, 2018, just 17 days after launch.
