In a latest finding, a team of NASA scientists have found evidence of water on a Martian meteorite, suggesting biological processes might have occurred on the Red Planet some millions of years ago.
Earlier this month, the Curiosity rover was experiencing terrain difficulties on Mars. It was driving over a rocky surface and accruing damage to its wheels. NASA engineers then decided to have Curiosity jump over a sand dune to avoid such harmful terrain.
NASA revealed that the orbit of the Mars Odyssey spacecraft has been modified in order to help scientists make systematic observations of the morning fogs, clouds and surface frost that develop on the Martian surface in different seasons.

NASA's famed Curiosity Rover makes another impressive find by capturing a bizarre celestial object streaking through the Martian atmosphere, which the UFO hunters believe is an extra terrestrial craft.
Four billion years ago Mars had liquid water that was extremely fresh and capable enough to sustain life, a latest finding based on the Opportunity's Mars mission.
NASA's decade-old Mars rover, Opportunity, has found evidence that life-friendly fresh water once pooled on the red planet's surface, reinforcing similar discoveries made by newcomer Curiosity on the other side of the planet, scientists said on Thursday.
On January 24, 2004, NASA's rover Opportunity landed on Mars and was expected to endure a three-month adventure. Well, that adventure has been prolonged a bit, because today is Opportunity's 10-year anniversary and it is still exploring Mars.
