Want to explore Mars? You may be able to with some new NASA simulations. The space agency has released two new online tools that will open the mysterious terrain of the Red planet to a new generation of explorers.
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.
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.
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.
