Mars: March 2014


A research team in Spain has the enviable job of testing out new electromechanical gear for potential use in future missions to the "Red Planet."

When we send probes to other worlds (such as Mars) to look for evidence of past life, we are sending them to look for fossils.

A team of scientists at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., has found evidence of past water movement throughout a Martian meteorite, reviving debate in the scientific community over life on Mars.

Mysterious dark finger-like features on steep Martian slopes that lengthen downhill during the Red Planet's warm season could be caused by flowing water, scientists at Southwest Research Institute and the SETI Institute reported.
