Earth and Mars are converging for a close encounter. As March gives way to April, the distance between the two planets is shrinking by about 300 km every minute.
Mars may have once, or still does, possess conditions capable of supporting life, making it a continued primary candidate for future missions. Researchers have now designed a simulation chamber that could be used to help prepare for these missions to the Red Planet.

Scientists at ESA are busy preparing for a December 29 fly-by of the Martian moon Phobos with the agency’s Mars Express craft.
It might sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, but an initiative to colonize Mars is one step closer to fruition after garnering support from US aerospace giant Lockheed Martin.
Mars may be helping to shape the surface of some near-Earth asteroids, according to a new study published in the journal Icarus.
Technophobia, from Greek techne, meaning art, skill, or craft, and phobos, meaning fear, is the fear or the dislike of advanced technology or complex devices, particularly computers. Although there are a number of interpretations of technophobia, they appear to become more complex as technology continues to evolve. The term is usually used in the sense of irrational fear, but others contend that their fears are justified. It is related to cyber phobia and it is the opposite of technophilia....
The Planet Mars -- in astronomy, 4th planet from the sun, with an orbit next in order beyond that of the earth. Physical Characteristics Mars has a striking red appearance, and in its most favorable position for viewing, when it is opposite the sun, it is twice as bright as Sirius, the brightest star. Mars has a diameter of 4,200 mi (6,800 km), just over half the diameter of the earth, and its mass is only 11% of the earth's mass. The planet has a very thin atmosphere consisting...
Mars' Moon Deimos -- outermost of two small moons orbiting the planet Mars. Deimos orbits Mars at a distance of about 23,500 km (about 14,100 mi), completing an orbit once every 1.26 Earth days. The moon's orbit is almost circular and is only slightly tilted relative to the Martian equator. Deimos is irregular in shape, measuring about 15 km (about 9 mi) along its longest side and about 11 km (about 6.6 mi) along its shortest side. It is the smallest known moon in the solar system. If...
Mars' Moon Phobos -- in astronomy, innermost moon, or natural satellite, of Mars. Phobos orbits Mars at a distance of only 9,378 km (5,627 mi), closer to its planet than any other moon in the solar system. In fact, it is so close that the force of Mars's gravity is stronger than the force keeping the moon in its orbit, so the radius of Phobos's orbit is decreasing at the rate of about 1.8 m (about 6 ft) per century. In 40 million years, Phobos will either break apart into a ring...
