a half billion years ago. what we now are bringing to mars of a standardized methods which we measure the earth's interior structure and energy. holes and we haven't done that on mars yet. nasa tested the mission step by step in its laps the spacecraft robotic arm is equipped with cameras and will deploy to key instruments if all goes to plan the seismometer will be installed in december it's the mission's most important fact finder with the ability to measure even miniscule planetary tremors it's hoped that it will record enough such mars quakes to produce a sonogram of the planet. the second instrument is set to start work in january developed by tilman sean and his team it's a probe the can sense the flow of the planet's heat. like

a mold the rot will borrow five meters below the surface. sensors along its tether will measure how the temperature changes with depth. a third instrument will track how much mars wobbles in its orbit around the sun. because i'm with you on this mission is about more than mas. is actually a mission to a terrestrial earth like planet earth mas' just happens to be the easiest of earth like planets to get to. and for. tillman spawn is convinced the data from mars will advance understanding of how all rocky planets formed and evolved including our own and others out there orbiting alien suns and still be on the reach of human space travel. but first insight will have to parachute to a safe landing. the descent will take seven long minutes the craft has to master

the landing without human help performing many small maneuvers that exactly the right time and without any mistakes until touchdown. but the issue of stolen art is back in the news here in germany we are in question were originally owed by jewish germans were taken from them during the nazi era the head of the world jewish congress this month criticized germany for failing to fulfill its historic responsibility of returning looted works of art exhibition in berlin is now shedding some light on this. what's the background to an artwork like this where does this. come from could it have been expropriated by the nazis looted stolen every little detail on the back of the painting is a clue to answer those questions the back room museum in berlin has examined one
6:12 pm
hundred and thirty five artworks in its possession the conclusion none of the works were stolen. we don't want any stolen or illegitimately acquired goods in our collections even if it's a major work if it happens it must be returned. so far the pression cultural heritage foundation in berlin has returned a total of three hundred fifty artworks and that might just be the tip of the iceberg it's estimated the nazis still around six hundred thousand works of art mostly from jewish families and many of them have still not been returned to their rightful owners like some of the works found in two thousand and twelve among a stash of fifteen hundred pieces in the munich apartment of cornelius were lit son of the wartime hildebrand's corlett pressure is growing on german lawmakers many think the process of determining and returning stolen art works takes too long and opposition parties are demanding more money be spent on restitution. it's been done
