NASA is slated to launch the latest Mars lander InSight on Saturday, May 4. The lander is designed to study marsquakes and help scientists learn more about the origins of rocky planets such as Earth and Mars.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured the Mars rover in lower Mount Sharp of the surface of Mars. The rover appears as a bright blue dot on the ground.
NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover managed to capture dark sand dunes and even collected samples at lower Mount Sharp. The dunes are part of the two-phase campaign to compare sand dunes on Mars.
Scientists say that the Martian atmosphere was lost into space over the years. Researchers used data from NASA's MAVEN and Curiosity rover to come up with the findings.
Two visible breaks were discovered in one of Mars Curiosity Rover's wheels. The wheels are already showing signs of wear and tear from traversing the unforgiving Martian terrain.
NASA is studying whirlwinds on Mars that were captured by Curiosity rover. These winds are capable of transporting dust thus affecting the planet's landscape.
The Opportunity rover already spent 13 years on the red planet. And just like teenagers, it has matured in many ways.
NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover captured an image of purple rocks on the surface of the red planet. Could it mean there was once microbial life on the red planet?
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover discovered organic matter such as "boron" on the red planet. This increases the chance of finding a suitable condition for microbes to thrive on Mars.
Since landing on Mars in 2012, NASA’s Curiosity Rover is slowly making its way along the Martian landscape, all while collecting rock samples. However, while on its way up Mount Sharp, the rover reportedly started to act weird. NASA engineers state that the rover is facing technical difficulties, particularly with its extendable arm that drills holes into Martian rock.
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover is on a hiatus due to the technical glitch experienced by its drilling mechanism. But despite that, other instruments aboard the rover is still functioning well including its cameras and spectrometers.
A NASA radio aboard Europe’s Mars orbiter has aced its first relay test. Data was transmitted to the radio from NASA’s Opportunity and Curiosity rovers and was successfully relayed to Earth.
Alien hunters claim that a tiny lizard on Mars was photographed by NASA's Curiosity Rover.
Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) predicts that a major dust storm will hit Mars in the next few weeks that might limit the solar energy used by Martian rovers Curiosity and Opportunity.
