Researchers used new techniques to more precisely estimate ground elevations on Mars, producing a refined resolution map for rover landings.
New findings suggest that unlike in Earth, the bottom of Mars’s mantle is a sea of molten silicate rock.
Despite centuries of study and many spacecraft visits, the Red Planet still holds secrets. Here are just a few.
A new analysis of the seismic data gathered by the InSight lander reveals that marsquakes occur across a much larger area of the planet than previously believed.
Hexagonal structures in sediments are evidence of repeated wet and dry conditions on the Red Planet.
Combining data from several of the Perseverance rover’s spectroscopic sensors offers a more accurate means to classify carbonate minerals that may hold hints of ancient life.
The development of plate tectonics and life on Earth provided avenues for mineral evolution that did not occur on Mars, resulting in relatively limited mineral diversity on the Red Planet.
Scientists are coming up with ingenious ways to compare terrestrial sand dunes, dust storms, and rain with their counterparts on Mars and Titan.
A close approach to Deimos reveals that its surface does not look like that of an asteroid, hinting at a Martian origin.
The InSight Lander, on Mars, intentionally dumped sand over its seismic instrument’s tether and the wind sorted the particles by size as it blew them away.
