Latest Water on Mars Stories
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...
Data will help scientists read Curiosity Mars rover samples for signs of life, says UMD coauthor of study published today in Nature. (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
NASA's Martian orbiters have sent back exciting evidence to mission operators showing that the Red Planet may in fact still have liquid water in existence on the surface.
For decades, scientists have been on a quest to find liquid water on the surface of Mars and new images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter may finally provide that evidence.
NASA said that three of its instruments built at the Goddard Space Flight Center were all running three experiments of the same kind at different places in space.
