The truth is out there.
During a recent calibration exercise, NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured a remarkable view of Earth and its moon from a distance of 127 million miles
NASA is working to resolve a problem with the Curiosity Rover’s drill, which has stalled, leaving the Martian explorer out of action on the slopes of Mount Sharp.
Mars has never looked cooler than it does in this new ESA video showcasing Mawrth Vallis, a ravine that once carried water for hundreds of miles.
In case Schiaparelli’s crash-landing left you thinking the ESA’s ExoMars mission was a bust, rest assured it wasn’t.
It has about as much thirst-quenching potential as Lake Superior.
Somehow, the Mars lander reckoned it was already below ground level when it came in to land.
We’re a long way from finding smoking gun evidence, but an analysis of silica minerals discovered by NASA’s Spirit rover pushes us one step closer.
Sadly no sporrans or haggis just yet.
New 3D modelling analysis shows that the lander’s failure to communicate with the Earth was likely due to a single jammed solar panel.
Ready to flee planet Earth yet?
NASA's Mars Orbiter has managed to snap some colour photos of the ESA's crashed lander. Read More >>
Using the ChemCam Remote Micro-Imager, Curiosity captured a detailed close-up shot of the object, which has been dubbed “Egg Rock.”
Of course, it’s not particularly easy. That’s why Earth is still the best planet.
NASA’s Mars Reconaissance Orbiter (MRO) has acquired new high-resolution images of the crashed Schiaparelli lander, following its ill-fated attempt to reach the surface of Mars in one piece.
The ill-fated Schiaparelli fell over a mile at a rate of 185 mph into Mars' surface.
