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.

Mars rover Curiosity digs deep and finds something like Hawaii

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has continued its solitary mission to the Red Planet, this week making a start on analysing soil samples scooped up from the Martian surface. Initial results show similarities between Martian soil and soil found on Hawaii.

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.

NASA captures new images of Saturn's moon Rhea

NASA displayed new raw, unedited images of Saturn's moon Rhea, captured by the Cassini spacecraft on a close-approach of 42,000 kilometers (26,000 miles), a relatively distant pass suitable for geologic mapping.

Comet Elenin Hit By An Explosion? Update: NASA Images

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.

The extent of Arctic sea ice on Aug. 26, 2012, the day the sea ice dipped to its previous smallest extent before the release of the data for September 2012.The line on the image shows the average minimum extent from the period covering 1979-2010, as measured by satellites. Every summer the Arctic ice cap melts down to what scientists call its “minimum” before colder weather builds the ice cover back up.

According to NASA astronomers: Hubble spectroscopic observations show that the Milky Way and many spiral galaxies recycle element-rich gas, while galaxies birthing stars in fiery bursts of activity lose fuel into intergalactic space faster, becoming "red and dead" sooner.

Heating Martian Sand Grains: This plot of data from NASA's Mars rover Curiosity shows the variety of gases released from sand grains upon heating in the Sample Analysis at Mars instrument, or SAM. The gases detected were released from fine-grain material, and include water vapor, carbon dioxide, oxygen and sulfur dioxide.

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.

This Hubble image features dark knots of gas and dust known as "Bok globules," dense pockets in larger molecular clouds. Similar islands of material in the early universe could have held as much water vapor as we find in our galaxy today, despite containing a thousand times less oxygen.

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.

Bridging Cities of Galaxies: Planck has discovered a bridge of hot gas that connects galaxy clusters Abell 399 (lower center) & Abell 401 (top left). The galaxy pair is located about a billion light-years from Earth. The gas bridge extends approximately 10 million light-years between them. The image shows the 2 galaxy clusters as seen at optical wavelengths with ground-based telescopes & through the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect (in orange) with the Planck satellite.
