Europe's next spacecraft to Mars is seen undergoing vibration testing at Thales Alenia Space, in Cannes, France, in preparation for its launch next year.
Dr. Daniel Kraft visited NASA Johnson Space Center to talk about his vision of the future of medical technologies.
The blueprints and science goals for the first Arab mission to Mars have been revealed for the first time. The Emirates Mars Mission probe, named "Hope", will create mankind's first integrated model of the Red Planet's atmosphere.
The non-profit Explore Mars Inc. group today released its first annual Humans to Mars Report. According to Explore Mars the report "provides updates on challenges, plus progress in areas such as mission architecture design and development, scientific discoveries, policy, public perception, international cooperation and competition, and new private capabilities".
NASA has robots and rovers on the surface of Mars and is planning on sending humans there as soon as technically possible, but there are steppingstones to getting there, conducting valuable scientific research, and returning home safely.
This image of a circular depression on the surface of Mars was acquired on Jan. 5, 2015 by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO).
Slate, Future Tense, and Lockheed Martin hosted the forum "Giant Leap: The Race to Mars and Back" with two panels of experts talking about Mars as the next destination for human exploration.
Several satellites orbit Mars and on satellite images, researchers have been able to observe the shape of glaciers just below the surface.
I just listened to 45 minutes of NASA presentations at the NASA Advisory Committee's Human Exploration and Operations Committee Meeting. The topic: radiation risks during a human mission to Mars. I have seen this movie before.
Two-tone mineral veins at a site NASA's Curiosity rover has reached by climbing a layered Martian mountain offer clues about multiple episodes of fluid movement. These episodes occurred later than the wet environmental conditions that formed lake-bed deposits the rover examined at the mountain's base.
NASA's Curiosity rover is using a new experiment to better understand the history of the Martian atmosphere by analyzing xenon.
A series of observations from Mars orbit show how dark blast zones that were created during the August 2012 landing of NASA's Curiosity rover have faded inconsistently.
Researchers from Brown University have completed a new analysis of an ancient Martian lake system in Jezero Crater, near the planet's equator.
NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft has observed two unexpected phenomena in the Martian atmosphere: an unexplained high-altitude dust cloud and aurora that reaches deep into the Martian atmosphere.
A primitive ocean on Mars held more water than Earth's Arctic Ocean, and covered a greater portion of the planet's surface than the Atlantic Ocean does on Earth, according to new results published today.
Images of Eos Chaos region of Mars taken by Mars color camera on board ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission on 5-2-2015 at a spatial resolution of 220 m from an altitude of 4403 km.
