NASA's Curiosity Rover Detects Spike in Methane on Mars

NASA's Curiosity rover discovered "startlingly high amounts of methane in the Martian air" on Wednesday in what could potentially be a sign of life on the Red Planet, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

Curiosity confirms clay deposits on slopes of Mount Sharp on Mars

Clay often forms in the presence of water – a key ingredient for the evolution of life as it is known on Earth – and Curiosity’s latest findings add more evidence that a significant amount of water once pooled and flowed in Gale Crater on Mars.

An Astounding Amount of Water Discovered on Mars

Scientists detected a massive reservoir of frozen water sandwiched by layers of sand beneath the northern polar ice cap on Mars. This reservoir contains so much ice that, if melted and brought to the surface, it would submerge the entire planet.

Mars Odyssey Reveals Phobos Using THEMIS

NASA’s aging 2001 Mars Odyssey orbiter recently snapped some unique views of the twin moons Phobos and Deimos.

NASA’s InSight lander detects first likely “marsquake”

The signal appears to have been generated inside the planet and not by any surface-level phenomenon. Three other seismic events were detected on 14 March, 10 and 11 April, but they were much smaller and their origins more ambiguous.

We Now Have Independent Confirmation of Methane on Mars

There was a big stir when reports emerged that the Curiosity rover had detected methane on Mars. But now an independent source has also detected methane on Mars.

Signs that Ancient Rivers Flowed Across the Surface of Mars

There’s a massive, growing wall of evidence showing that Mars may have had the necessary conditions for life in the past. ESA’s High-Resolution Camera on the Mars Express Orbiter, there are clear signs of a system of river valleys.

Opportunity Mars Rover is now lost to us

Opportunity landed on Mars more than 15 Earth years ago, on January 25, 2004. Originally designed for 90-day lifetimes, the rovers persisted. It roved a staggering 45.16 kilometers across the Red Planet.

NASA's InSight Mars Lander 'Hears' Martian Wind, a Cosmic First

For the first time in history, we can hear the wind on Mars. With its InSight Lander NASA provided a version of the recording shifted up in pitch, which pulls some of the otherwise-inaudible infrasound into hearing range.

NASA’s InSight mission lands on Mars to study planet’s hidden interior

InSight spacecraft plunged into the rarefied atmosphere of Mars at a speed of more than 12,000 mph Monday and braked to a gentle touchdown, setting the stage for a two-year surface mission to probe the planet’s deep interior.

NASA's Mars 2020 Rover Will Land in Jezero Crater

Mars 2020 is set to visit the Red Planet to take scientific data and hunt for past signs of life, and to better understand the planet for a future human visit.

A 360-Degree View Around Curiosity on Mars

NASA recently released a 360-degree panoramic image based on images taken by the Curiosity rover, which showed its latest drilling site.

Five Teams Compete to Design a 3D Printed Mars Habitat

As part of their 3D-Printed Habitat Centennial Challenge, NASA recently awarded five teams with a total of $100,000 for their designs for Martian habitats.

Underground Liquid Water Found on Mars

A new analysis of 15 years of data from the Mars Express probe by a team of Italian scientists shows compelling evidence for their being liquid water beneath Mars southern polar region.

Martian Dust Storm as it was Just Getting Going

The ESA recently released stunning photos of a Martian storm front, which were acquired by the Mars Express orbiter in April of 2018.
