Life on Mars could have existed in ancient fresh water lake

London - Scientists analysing data gathered by NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Curiosity rover mission have uncovered evidence pointing to an ancient lake that once existed on Mars that may have supported life.

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 Mars rover Curiosity captures stunning self-portrait

Everybody is enthusing about Curiosity's latest high-res self-portrait. The image, created by stitching together 55 different images captured using the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI), is the most stunning self-portrait the rover has done so far.

Curiosity on Mars – NASA puzzled by 'unique' Jake Matijevic rock

NASA’s Mars roving explorer Curiosity has already revealed a treasure trove of discoveries on the Red Planet. Its latest find is a pyramid shaped chunk of rock, that’s proved to be something of a surprise even to NASA.

South Africa supporting the launch of NASA's latest Mars probe

The South African National Space Agency’s (Sansa's) Space Operations is to get involved with the the $2.3-billion Mars Science Laboratory.

1000kg Mars lander Curiosity takes your name to Mars

The new Mars lander is really a laboratory complete with a very high power laser for ionizing small amounts of rock for chemical sampling. Curiosity is a big departure in other ways too, with a brand-new rock-climbing capacity built into its suspension.

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.

Wind-Blown Martian Sand: Two images from the Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity rover show the upper portion of a wind-blown deposit dubbed "Rocknest." Curiosity took a scoop of soil from an area out of frame. The soil was analyzed with the Chemin instrument. The colors in the left image are unedited, showing the scene as it is on Mars.The image at right has been white-balanced to show what the same area would look like under natural light on Earth.

First X-ray View of Martian Soil This graphic shows results of the first analysis of Martian soil by the Chemistry and Mineralogy (CheMin) experiment on NASA's Curiosity rover. The image reveals the presence of crystalline feldspar, pyroxenes and olivine mixed with some amorphous (non-crystalline) material. The soil sample, taken from a wind-blown deposit within Gale Crater, where the rover landed, is similar to volcanic soils in Hawaii.

Curiosity Rover's Travels, August to November 2012: NASA's Mars rover Curiosity landed at a site subsequently named "Bradbury Landing," then moved to near "Point Lake," in drives totaling 1,703 feet (519 meters). It worked on scoops of soil for a few weeks at the drift of windblown sand called "Rocknest." The depression called "Yellowknife Bay" is a potential location for the first target rock for Curiosity's hammering drill.
