Dramatic flood events carved this impressive channel system on Mars covering 1.55 million square kilometres, shown here in a stunning new mosaic from ESA’s Mars Express.
NASA Mars rover Opportunity isn't just on the move, it's also discovered a clay-rich rock that hints to the fact that water existed on the Red Planet in the past.
New global maps of Mars released on the 10th anniversary of the launch of ESA’s Mars Express trace the history of water and volcanic activity on the Red Planet, and identify sites of special interest for the next generation of Mars explorers.
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has confirmed the hazards of space radiation. Sending astronauts to the Red Planet without a properly protected spacecraft could drastically increase their risk of cancer.
There may be more evidence for life on Mars. Researchers have discovered that a chemical reaction between iron-containing minerals and water may produce enough hydrogen "food" to sustain microbial communities living in pores and cracks within the enormous volume of rock below the ocean floor and par...
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has collected data and evidence that reveals an ancient streambed on Mars. The findings could hint at the possibility of life on the Red Planet in the past.
In the main belt between Mars and Jupiter, families of asteroids spin through space. Now, researchers have used NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) to make some new finds about these objects.
NASA Mars rover Curiosity has been trekking across the Red Planet since August. Now, you can see almost the entirety of the rover's mission in just over a minute on a time-lapse video.
A Canadian-led team of researchers have discovered bacteria that can grow in Canadian High Arctic much below the freezing point, and this makes the recent discovery of a bacterium that is able to grow at -15 degrees C one the coldest temperature ever reported for bacterial growth, as exciting.
The U.S. House Subcommittee on Space held one of their hearings today on the topic of possible options for the next steps in human space flight and how these options move the U.S. closer to a human mission to Mars and beyond.
NASA is onboard for creating a 3D printer--for food. What sort of food will it print, you ask? Apparently the first item on the menu is pizza.
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity, the vehicle that's trekking across the Red Planet in hopes of making novel discoveries, has officially drilled into its second rock. The sample, once analyzed by the rover's onboard laboratory, could reveal new insight into the origins of Mars.
