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.
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.
The most powerful previously detected quakes occurred in the Cerberus Fossae region on Mars, where lava may have flowed in the geologically recent past.
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.
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.
Other rovers have also experience dust devils, but Jezero crater, Perseverance’s landing site, seems to have a high occurrence of dust devils.
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.
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.
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.
