Water At The Bottom of Valles Marineris on Mars

According to new evidence obtained by the orbiter element of the joint European-Russian ExoMars mission, there is plenty of water ice at the bottom of Valles Marineris mixed with Martian soil - regolith.

The Results For Long Mars Simulations Are Worrying

The results from Mars simulations, Project Sirius and project Mars-500, showed worrisome outcome - the astronauts become detached from mission control and almost autonomous with time. 

First 3D View of Jupiter Atmosphere

New findings from NASA's Juno probe orbiting Jupiter provide a fuller picture of how the planet's distinctive and colorful atmospheric features offer clues about the unseen processes below its clouds.

Venus Never Had Oceans, New Study Suggests

New research suggests that water never condensed and that, consequently, oceans never formed on the surface of Venus. One of the main reasons for this is the clouds that form preferentially on the night side of the planet.

InSight lander detects most powerful marsquake yet

The most powerful previously detected quakes occurred in the Cerberus Fossae region on Mars, where lava may have flowed in the geologically recent past.

Giant Balls of Mush in the Atmospheres of Uranus and Neptune

Scientists have long noticed an absence of ammonia in the atmospheres of Uranus and Neptune. Scientists now think that ammonia in the upper atmosphere formed “mushballs” by merging with water.

Rover confirms existence of ancient Mars lake and river delta

The first research paper from Perseverance rover team was published lately. It shows that Jezero Crater on Mars was probably the site of some violent floods.

Perseverance has Detected Over 300 Dust Devils and Vortices on Mars

Other rovers have also experience dust devils, but Jezero crater, Perseverance’s landing site, seems to have a high occurrence of dust devils.

Something big Just hit Jupiter

The impact on Jupiter was reported by both amateur and professional astronomers. The object’s diameter is estimated at 20 meters and it is believed to be the remnant of a larger comet or asteroid.

Saturn Has A "Fuzzy" Core

Ripples in Saturn’s innermost rings indicate the planet’s core is not a compact, solid structure as some have theorized but more like a thick “soup” of ice, rock and metallic fluids extending across 60 % of the planet’s diameter.

The Best Evidence for Life on Mars Might be Found on its Moons

Some scientists think the best place to find evidence of life is one of Mars’ moons. They might serve as a depository for material that was blasted off of Mars’ surface in the past.

InSight lander has Mapped out the Interior of Mars

he InSight team has found that the Martian crust is thinner then expected (20 to 37 km) and its core is liquid with radius of about 1830 km.

Astrobiologists Detect a Signature of Life on Mars

When light shines on biological matter, part of the wavelength of the light that is reflected back is curled in either a clockwise or counterclockwise spiral. Astrobiologists used this phenomena in their remote sensing technique.

Mars Helicopter Succeeds in Historic First Flight

Monday, NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter became the first aircraft in history to make a powered, controlled flight on another planet. The flight was a success.

First X-rays from Uranus discovered

Astronomers have detected X-rays from Uranus using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. This result may help scientists learn more about this enigmatic ice giant planet in our solar system.
