Scientists may be a step closer to interplanetary travel. Scientists have found that the electromagnetic propulsion drive, known as the EM drive, actually stands up to experimental scrutiny.
Researchers have used the ChemCam laser instrument on NASA's Curiosity rover to reveal that the Red Planet has a crust that's surprisingly similar to Earth's granitic continental crust rocks.
Martian gems could actually point to evidence of life on the Red Planet. They've discovered physical evidence of opals on Mars, which could also mean that there's life.
There's a new plan for sending humans to Mars. Researchers have created a U.S. strategy that minimizes new developments and relies mainly on already available or planned NASA assets.
The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) may be making new worlds. The agency wants to create organisms that will turn Mars into another Earth.
Mars may be sporting a "hairstyle" that's sure to make other planets jealous. NASA's MAVEN spacecraft has discovered that the Red Planet sports a "Mohawk" of escaping atmospheric particles at its poles.
A team of researchers have discovered traces of methane in Martian meteorites. The new findings could be a huge clue in the hunt for life on the Red Planet.
Researchers have taken a look at two opposite climate scenarios for the Red Planet and have found that a cold an icy planet may better explain the water drainage and erosion features seen on the planet today.
Scientists may have found a way to detect past life on Mars within glass
It turns out that organisms from Earth could survive in the harsh conditions on Mars.
They may look like cool, clear pools of water on Mars, but they're not. Mars Express has taken new images that reveal blue "pools" on the Red Planet that are actually something else entirely.
