Latest Water on Mars Stories
A Washington State University undergraduate has helped develop a new method for detecting water on Mars. Her findings appear in Nature Communications, one of the most influential general science journals.
NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) continually makes high-resolution observations of the surface of Mars. Recent images have revealed that the gullies on the surface are mainly formed by seasonal freezing of carbon dioxide and not liquid water.
WASHINGTON, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Repeated high-resolution observations made by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) indicate the gullies on Mars' surface are primarily
3,500 million years ago the Martian crater Gale, through which the NASA rover Curiosity is currently traversing, was covered with glaciers, mainly over its central mound.
Using ultraviolet and infrared imaging techniques, scientists have discovered that the Martian atmosphere contains particulate matter in two distinct sizes.
Researchers have discovered on the Red Planet the largest fresh meteor-impact crater ever firmly documented with before-and-after images. The images were captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
WASHINGTON, May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Researchers have discovered on the Red Planet the largest fresh meteor-impact crater ever firmly documented with before-and-after images.
A new study from ETH Zurich geoscientists Giovanni Leone, however, suggests that lava, rather than water or tectonic plate activity, cut the gigantic valleys into the red planet's landscape.
Well preserved gullies and debris flow deposits in a crater on the southern hemisphere of Mars are providing new evidence through their geomorphological attributes that they were formed by the action of liquid water in relatively recent geological times.
Martian meteorites that fell to Earth are revealing secrets of an early atmosphere on Mars that is hidden in the chemical signatures of each ancient rock. Geologists, who collected and studied 40 of these otherworldly rocks, have found an important key...
