The existence of an ancient cold ocean on early Mars, surrounded by ice, could explain the presence of unusual minerals in the Martian soil. It is assumed that the cold ocean water can cover part of the northern hemisphere of the Red Planet.View More Unusual Minerals Could Explain Cold Ocean on Early Mars
Planet Mars has approach to Earth at record small distance,that happens one time in 60,000 years. Only 55.6 million miles will separate Mars and Earth. Over the next few weeks sun will shine the Red planet a little brighter than usual.View More Mars Will Be Maximum Closer to Earth
According to observations from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) salt water could be running down some slopes of Mars every spring. A team led by Alfred McEwen from Arizona State University studied the pictures from a camera on board the probe HiRISE Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO).View More New Data Suggest Water Flowing On Mars
In this week on Tuesday the moon will appear closest to Aldebaran, which is the bright star known as the eye of Taurus (the bull), an hour before dawn in the eastern sky. At the same time on Wednesday morning, the moon will shine next to Mars in the east.View More The Moon Mars and a Bright Star Aldebaran Will Appear Throughout This Week
The new rover NASA Curiosity, which is scheduled to launch to Mars in November 2011, after run fundamental scientific problems, may try to “conquer” five-kilometer mountain in crater Gale, which is chosen as the landing site. Gale is 96 miles (154 kilometers) wide, and a 3-mile-high (5-km) mountain rises from its center.View More NASA Chose the Landing Site for Next Mars Rover
Snow storms which occur on Mars are much more important and powerful than on Earth. The red planet has dry and cold climate for the past 3.5 billion years. Although recent studies have shown that Mars began to form small lakes, and sometimes inside the craters.View More There are Snow Storms on Mars
On Saturday (July 16), 2011, NASA Dawn Spacecraft arrived at the huge asteroid Vesta, making it the first spacecraft ever to orbit an object in the solar system’s asteroid belt.The Dawn spacecraft entered orbit around Vesta after a four-year chase and will spend about a year studying the huge space rock.View More NASA Spacecraft Enters Orbit Around Asteroid Vesta
New development of the European Space Agency (ESA) became anthropomorphous robot, called Justin. As planned, in 2-3 years when the work is completed, it will be able to participate in space programs for the exploration of the Moon, and planets in the Solar System. Have to say that the main goal, of course, is Mars. The basic work on the robot fell on the shoulders of scientists from the Aviation and Space Center in Germany (DLR).View More European Space Agency Robot
NASA scientists are found new evidence that suggests traces of water on Mars are under a thin varnish of iron oxide, or rust, similar to conditions found on desert rocks in California’s Mojave Desert.It is believed that one consequence of the presence of water is the formation of specific minerals, so called carbonates.
Mars could be spotted with many more patches of carbonates than originally suspected.
