Stunning images of Mars are captured by NASA’s HiRISE camera onboard Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which is the oldest spacecraft currently active around Mars.
NASA's Perseverance rover is aiming to land at the base of an 820-foot-deep crater called Jezero, site of a former lake and water system from 3.5 billion years ago that scientists suspect could bear evidence of potential past microbial life.
Jezero crater, the destination of NASA's Perseverance rover, is a promising place to look for evidence of extinct Martian life.
The Chinese probe is expected to reach Mars in February 2021 where it will attempt to deploy a rover to explore the planet for 90 days.
On July 20, a United Arab Emirates spacecraft rocketed away on a seven-month journey to Mars, kicking off the Arab world's first interplanetary mission.
The Hope orbiter will make contributions to research on the red planet, but the Emirati government really hopes it will inspire future scientists.
Mars, often referred to as the Red Planet, is about to be invaded by three countries — the United States, China and the United Arab Emirates — which are sending their unmanned spacecraft to the planet to seek signs of ancient microscopic life.
The image was taken on July 1 when MOM was about 7,200 km from Mars and 4,200 km from Phobos.
As part of its next Mars mission, NASA is sending an experimental helicopter to fly through the red planet’s thin atmosphere.
Martian meteorites that have fallen on Earth were studied to arrive at a theory on how the amalgamation of different materials formed the mantle of the Red Planet.
The request would boost the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's budget by 12 percent for the fiscal year that starts October 1, with nearly half of the funds going toward the "Moon to Mars" program, which includes development of lunar landers, robotic rovers, heavy-lift rockets and new spacesuits.
Of the 155 shortlisted, nine will be selected before the public votes for their favourite name online later this month
the 1967 Outer Space Treaty outlines that outer space shall not be weaponised, in order to enable all countries to peacefully explore it.
China is on track to launch its Mars mission in 2020, Zhang Kejian, head of the China National Space Administration, said on Thursday. Zhang was speaking ahead of the hovering-and-obstacle avoidance test for the lander.
The study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, noted that over 3 billion years ago the lake that was present in Gale Crater -- an immense 95-mile-wide rocky basin that is being explored with the NASA Curiosity rover since 2012 -- underwent a drying episode possibly linked to the global drying of Mars.
Take a look at some of the beautiful pictures taken by the Mars Colour Camera (MCC)
Akshay Kumar and Taapsee Pannu-starrer Mission mangal is only one of the handful of science fiction dramas the country has produced. While organizations like NASA are depicted with pride in Hollywood, Indian space research organizations function far more secretively
The interplay of dunes, wind, and lava made the particular chevron look so prominent in the photograph taken by HiRISE.
The Shallow Radar or SHARAD, an instrument mounted on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, was used by the researchers to make these observations.
The water cycle takes place on Mars every two Earth years when it is summer in the planet’s southern hemisphere.
The material found in the meteorite is like what certain iron-oxidizing microbes produce on Earth.
The food and beverages colour industry - a niche segment of the dyes and pigment industry---not only benefits from growth in the end market (FMCG sector) but also has significant barriers to entry, due to its highly regulated business. As a result, the industry has an oligopolistic structure, where only a few companies are up the scale in terms of technical knowhow and quality control.
Bridenstine also pointed out that multiple research findings hint at Mars once being conducive for life to thrive on it, and may still be so.
Traveling 301 million miles (548 million km) from Earth, the Mars InSight spacecraft was due to reach its destination on the dusty, rock-strewn surface of the Red Planet at about 3 p.m. EST (2000 GMT).
The research, published in the journal Planetary and Space Science, used computer models to simulate the movement of debris from Stickney crater, a huge gash on one end of Phobos' oblong body.
