NEW YORK (Web Desk) – NASA said that mangers have suspended the launch because of an air leak in one of two prime instruments on Tuesday.

The leaked instrument is identified as seismometer which belongs to French Space Agency, NBC News reported.

The Insight spacecraft was supposed to take off in March and land on the red planet next year.

The termination raises questions about the future of the study effort, as it will be another two years before Earth and Mars are favorably aligned for a launch.
