InSight lander detects Marsquake for the first time

InSight lander detects Marsquake for the first time

Science
April 23 (UPI) -- For the first time, a tremor has been detected on the surface of Mars. The so-called marsquake was detected by the InSight lander's SEIS seismometer. The seismic quake was so small it wouldn't have registered on Earth's surface, but because the Martian surface is so still, the instrument's sensor was able to detect the slight tremor. Unfortunately, the tremor was so small that it's signature failed to offer any insights into Mars' interior. Scientists aren't sure what caused the miniature quake, but they're fairly certain it originated from inside Mars and wasn't caused by wind.

Sports
April 23 (UPI) -- Vegas Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant called San Jose Sharks coach Peter DeBoer a "clown" after DeBoer accused Gallant of trash-talking Sharks players from the bench during the teams' first-round playoff series. Reporters asked DeBoer on Monday if the trash-talking between players had gradually decreased as the series went on. The Sharks coach responded with a jab at Gallant. "There's still chatter," DeBoer told reporters. "Their coach is probably doing the most chatter. He's talking to our players constantly, which is something that I haven't seen before. That's probably where most of the chatter is coming from now. The players are playing." DeBoer said one of the recipients of Gallant's alleged taunts was Sharks center Logan Couture, labeling Gallant's behavi...
