NASA's Mars 2020 rover to unlock more Martian secrets

Washington - NASA’s successor to the Mars Curiosity rover will head to the red planet in 2020 carrying a payload of scientific instruments that will explore Mars as never before.

Op-Ed: NASA Mars landing in 2030s? Forget it, U.S. has lost its balls

Sydney - When you remember the sheer enthusiasm of the Moon landings, the vague babblings about Martian landings are to put it mildly, unimpressive. The march of progress in space has become a limp-wristed square dance.

Op-Ed: Mars One wants proposals for 2018 payloads, but missing a trick?

Amersfoort - Mars One, the controversial “ultimate reality show” program to land people to live on Mars, has issued a press release requesting proposals for four demonstration payloads. The project has attracted thousands of volunteers, and a lot of skepticism.

NASA find evidence of water in meteorite, is there life on Mars?

A team of NASA scientists has found evidence of past water movement throughout a Martian meteorite, it has stoked the debate over whether life on Mars existed at some point in the past.

Mars Orbiter spots Star Trek logo in dunes on Mars

Tucson - This spooky image of dunes seemingly treading across the surface of Mars was acquired by the HiRISE camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on Dec. 30, 2013.

ESA and Roscosmos sign deal for ExoMars Mars explorer missions

The European Space Agency and the Russian federal space agency, Roscosmos, announced today that they entered a formal agreement to work together on the ExoMars programme, looking ahead to the launch of two missions to the planet Mars in 2016 and 2018.

NASA's Curiosity rover drills first rock samples on Mars

NASA announced yesterday that its Mars rover Curiosity had drilled its first rock sample on the Red Planet, the first time any robotic explorer had successfully drilled for rock samples on another planet.

American Geophysical Union: Update on Mars Curiosity’s analyses

The science community has been abuzz with rumours recently that Mars Curiosity rover had found something big on Mars but in a briefing at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union, NASA scientists played down the hype.

Mars Curiosity Rover: NASA hints at historic discovery

NASA talked tantalisingly about a discovery made by its Mars Curiosity Rover this week that could "get in the history books" but finding out what exactly that discovery may be will have to wait a few weeks until NASA has checked results.

Curiosity sniffs the Martian air but no clues yet to life on Mars

NASA’s Curiosity rover sampled the air on Mars this week. At a teleconference on November 2, NASA announced Curiosity had not found any evidence of methane, which is often a sign of life, in the Martian atmosphere.

NASA's 'Opportunity' nears crater 'Endeavour'

NASA's six-wheeled Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is rolling towards the rim of the huge Endeavour Crater, approaching a probable final destination that begins at Spirit Point, named in honor of its rover-twin, Spirit, silent since March 22, 2010.

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity used a mechanism on its robotic arm to dig up five scoopfuls of material from a patch of dusty sand called "Rocknest," producing the five bite-mark pits visible in this image from the rover's left Navigation Camera (Navcam). Each of the pits is about 2 inches (5 centimeters) wide.

Possible Sources & Sinks of Methane on Mars: Potential non-biological sources include comets, degradation of interplanetary dust particles by ultraviolet light, and interaction between water and rock. A potential biological source would be microbes, if microbes ever lived on Mars. Potential sinks for removing methane from the atmosphere are photochemistry in the atmosphere and loss of methane to the surface.

This image shows where NASA's Curiosity rover aimed two different instruments to study a rock known as "Jake Matijevic." The red dots are where the Chemistry and Camera (ChemCam) instrument zapped it with its laser on Sept. 21, 2012, and Sept. 24, 2012, which were the 45th and 48th sol, or Martian day of operations. The circular black and white images were taken by ChemCam to look for the pits produced by the laser. The purple circles indicate where the Alpha Particle X-ray Spectrometer trained
