The InSight lander safely arrived on Mars early last week. Two tiny spacecraft made up part of its communications array and transmitted landing data back to Earth.
The impact crater is a dry lake bed that contains evidence of ancient water flows and perhaps signs of ancient microbial life.
A NASA team has developed resources to intrigue the public with the discoveries from its Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission. Here are four tips for communicating that science.
Rainfall in the driest parts of Chile’s Atacama Desert in 2017 resulted in hypersaline lagoons that killed the majority of microbes adapted to millions of years of arid conditions.
Some pools of salty water on the Red Planet could contain enough dissolved oxygen for microorganisms and sponges to survive, new calculations suggest.
The second phase of Curiosity’s campaign at the Bagnold Dunes brought new observations of windblown sands during Mars’s windy season.
A solar cycle of data was scoured for the biggest electron energy fluxes seen in the Mars space environment.
Researchers use high-resolution images of Mars’s surface to look for signals of coseismic displacement.
Shallow Radar correlation of discrete units in one of the Red Planet’s largest ice reservoirs suggests that its material was emplaced as a single, regional deposit.
Light-colored Gale crater rocks could have formed from intraplate volcanoes, not continental crust, new study finds.
