  1. China is about to try a high-stakes landing on Mars Tianwen-1, China’s first mission to orbit the red planet, is set to release a rover called Zhurong on a harrowing descent to the surface. China's Mars landing platform and Zhurong rover are seen in an illustration released in 2016 by the Chinese State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense. The rover is named after the god of fire in ancient Chinese mythology, which echoes the Chinese name of the red planet, Huoxing, meaning the planet of fire. ILLUSTRATION BY XINHUA VIA GETTY I
  2. NASA: Don't expect humans to fly around Mars on big helicopters "Get to the chopper!" is one phrase astronauts won't be yelling on Mars. NASA's experimental Ingenuity helicopter hopes to take flight on Mars. NASA/JPL-Caltech/ASU Space fans are eagerly awaiting updates on when the Ingenuity Mars helicopter might attempt the first powered, controlled flight on another planet. That gives us time to imagine the possibilities for flying on other worlds. If Ingenuity is successful, could it become a prototype for a Mars chopper that would carry humans? Unfortu

  7. Mapping the ice on Mars that could support future missions It's not great to land near Mars' poles, and accessing water will be key. Enlarge / While we know of locations with ice on Mars, not all of them are in places we'd want to land. NASA/JPL-Caltech/University of Arizona Over the past couple decades, plans to go to Mars or return to the Moon for longer stays have gradually moved away from sci-fi tinged "what if" scenarios and shifted to something that resembles actual planning. And those plans invariably include extract

Photograph: GREGG NEWTON/Getty Images On February 9, the United Arab Emirates’ Hope spacecraft is expected to enter orbit around Mars after a six-month, 300-million-mile journey from Earth. It will mark the beginning of a historic month for the Red Planet, which will see three separate national mis
  9. NASA’s next Mars mission has now burned nearly half of its launch window The $2.1 billion rover has a limited amount of time to launch this summer. First image of article image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all 6 images. NASA says it will be forced to delay the launch of its multibillion-dollar Perseverance mission to no earlier than July 30. The Mars-bound large rover must launch on an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida before the middle of August, or it will miss Earth's conjunction with the red planet.

Image: Emirates Mars Mission This summer, the United Arab Emirates aims to join the ranks of just a handful of elite space-faring countries around the world by launching its first interplanetary mission to Mars. For the last six years, the small Middle Eastern country has worked tirelessly to build a spacecraft that can orbit the Red Planet to study its atmosphere and weather. Now, the
  11. Mars Curiosity Rover captures its highest resolution panorama at 1.8 billion pixels As we near the final stages of development of the upcoming Mars 2020 Rover, NASA's current Curiosity Mars Rover has taken its highest resolution panorama yet. Comprised of over 1.8 billion pixels of the Martian terrain, the panorama is a stitched amalgamation of over 1,000 images taken during the 2019 Thanksgiving holiday. The picture showcases Glen Torridon, which is a region on the side of Mount Sharp on Mars. Impressively, the 1.8 billion-pixel panorama eclipses

  13. One could fly to Mars in this spacious habitat and not go crazy "We're offering a huge amount of volume in a small amount of space." On Wednesday, Sierra Nevada Corporation—the company that makes aerospace equipment, not beer—showed off its proposed in-space habitat for the first time. The inflatable habitat is, first and foremost, large. It measures more than 8 meters long, and with a diameter of 8 meters has an internal volume of 300 cubic meters, which is about one-third the size of the International Space Station. Sierra Nevada developed this

It’s a debate that has bedeviled NASA for decades. Aurich Lawson / Getty Images Nearly two years ago, Vice President Mike Pence made the administration's space policy official, saying NASA would re-focus its program around "establishing a renewed American presence on the Moon, a vital strategic goal."

  17. Meteors crashing into Mars give rise to mysterious, smoky clouds Where there's meteoric smoke, there's cloud cover. NASA's Curiosity rover sees clouds on Mars. NASA/JPL-Caltech/York University NASA's Mars InSight lander and Curiosity rover have been doing a lot of skygazing and sending back lovely views of wispy clouds. It doesn't rain on Mars, but we might be closer to figuring out how the cold, barren planet can have such scenic cloudy days. A research team led by Victoria Hartwick, a gradu
  18. NASA has shared a new Mars image, but instead of featuring the Red Planet’s dusty orange landscape, we’re greeted with far more unusual sight: “brain terrain.” Scientists gave this mysterious surface its nickname due to its texture, which resembles the color and folds of a brain. The space agency has shared a high-resolution version of the image for the public to download. The image above was captured over Mars’ Protonilus Mensae, though NASA says the brain terrain landscape can be found throughout the Red Planet’s mid-latitude regions. The image was captured using the High Resolut
  19. Mars may look like a dry, dusty planet today. But scientific models indicate that it was likely once home to massive amounts of water, both above and below its surface - and now, researchers have evidence to back those models up. "Early Mars was a watery world, but as the planet's climate changed this water retreated below the surface to form pools and 'groundwater'," European Space Agency (ESA) researcher Francesco Salese said in a press release. "We traced this water in our study, as its scale and role is a matter of debate," he continued, "and we found the
  20. There was a big stir when reports emerged that the Curiosity rover had detected methane on Mars. But there was a problem: it could not be ruled out that its sensors were wiggy, or something was misinterpreted. Now it seems we can put that concern to rest - because an independent source has also detected methane on Mars. On 16 June 2013, a day before Curiosity detected methane in the same region, the European Space Agency's Mars Express mission, in orbit around the Red Planet, caught a whiff of the stuff near the Gale Crater - the region explored by Curiosity.
  21. While the presence of liquid water on Mars remains an ongoing topic of intense interest, we know that there is plenty of water ice adorning the Red Planet - and boy can it ever look amazing, as new images from the European Space Agency's Mars Express attest. The Mars orbiter has obtained a stunning view of a feature called the Korolev crater, an 81.4-kilometre (50.6-mile) diameter crater just south of the Olympia Undae dunes circling the northern polar cap. The crater is filled almost to the brim with pristine ice year-round. Like Earth, Mars does have seasons. And like

  23. Another look at possible under-ice lakes on Mars: They’re still there It can be tough to spot water under an ice cap from orbit. Enlarge ESA 38 with 29 posters participating In recent decades, we've become aware of lots of water on Earth that's deep under ice. In some cases, we've watched this water nervously, as it's deep underneath ice sheets, where it could lubricate the sheets' slide into the sea. But we've also discovered lakes that have been trapped under ice near the poles, possibly for millions of years,
