Mars loves to shake its booty, NASA confirms
NASA sent the InSight robot to Mars with a number of objectives in mind. Since its time on the planet, the robot has become the first Martian weatherman and done its best to jam its probe into a Mars hole that just isn't cooperating. It's also been listening intently to the inner workings of the planet, which is largely why it carries the "InSight' moniker, and NASA just shared some of its biggest findings with the world. InSight's sensitive instruments can listen in to the rumbles happening deep below the Martian surface. Detecting so-called "Marsquakes" isn't easy, but scientists have gotten pretty good at separating true Marsquake signals from other data that might be the result of wind or other environmental quirks. Earth has a lot of seismic activity, and with Mars already appearing so Earth-like, scientists wanted to know if Mars had a similar personality. As it turns out, Mars does indeed like to shake from time to time. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory explains: Mars trembles more often - but also more mildly - than expected.

Intuit's CEO says he's not chasing 'mega deals' and says the $7.1 billion acquisition of Credit Karma will give consumers more choice (INTU)
TurboTax maker Intuit announced plans to acquire credit monitoring company Credit Karma for $7.1 billion on Monday. Intuit CEO Sasan Goodarzi and Credit Karma CEO Kenneth Lin tell Business Insider that the deal will accelerate the growth of both of their companies.
