On September 18, 2021, NASA’s InSight lander celebrated its 1,000th Martian day by measuring one of the biggest, longest-lasting marsquakes its has ever detected; the event is estimated to be about a magnitude 4.2 and shook for nearly an hour-and-a-half; this is the third major marsquake it has detected in a month: on August 25, the lander detected two quakes of magnitudes 4.2 and 4.1.

NASA's InSight lander has detected hundreds of "marsquakes" on Mars, including about 20 tremors that were relatively significant.

Compared to quakes here on Earth, the marsquakes were pretty puny, but the new data could provide planetary scientists with more information about the interior of Mars.
