Nasa's Perseverance rover has been able to generate 122g of breathable oxygen - enough to sustain a human for three hours on the Red Planet.
New observations of mud cracks made by NASA's Curiosity rover show that high-frequency, wet-dry cycling occurred in early Martian surface environments.
French researchers suggesting that the tallest volcano in Solar System, Olympus Mons on Mars was once a volcanic island, surrounded by a deep sea.
Researchers poring over imagery and data from the Perseverance rover on Mars have found evidence of organic molecules in the planet’s Jezero Crater, potentially providing evidence of the planet’s carbon cycles and its ability to host life.
Four small rooms, a gym and a lot of red sand - NASA unveiled its new Mars-simulation habitat, in which volunteers will live for a year at a time to test what life will be like on future missions to Earth.
Scientists have detected sound waves moving through Mars’ core for the first time, offering new clues to the composition of the fourth planet from the Sun.
Launched 19 July 2020 atop a Japanese H-2A rocket, the Hope probe braked into a highly elliptical orbit around Mars on 9 February 2021. The first such close encounter came in late January.
A Martian meteorite that crashed in Morocco 11 years ago contains a vast diversity of organic compounds, which could help researchers discover if Mars could have hosted life and provide important clues about Earth's geological history.
A recent study finds that the vast subsurface fracture networks in Gale crater would have provided water-rich and radiation-shielded conditions that were potentially more habitable than those on the surface.
Rock samples from the Jezero crater analyzed by NASA's Perseverance Mars rover show evidence of liquid water and signatures that could be organic compounds.
A recently released set of topography maps provides new evidence for an ancient northern ocean on Mars. The maps offer the strongest case yet that the planet once experienced sea-level rise consistent with an extended warm and wet climate.
NASA scientists said Thursday the Mars Perseverance rover found biologically-interesting rocks in an ancient lake bed that could indicate microbial life existed on the red planet billions of years ago.
