NASA has decided the site for its Mars 2020 rover mission; this is Jezero Crater. The 28-mile- (45-kilometer) wide Jezero Crater was chosen as the destination for the mission, which is going to launch in July 2020, because of its potential for scientific research.View More NASA Has Chosen Landing Site for Mars 2020 Rover
NASA breaks another record when realizing new mission, land on the Red Planet in February 2021. “Like all our prior Mars missions, we only have one Mars parachute and it has to work,” John McNamee, project manager of Mars 2020 at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, said in a statement.View More NASA Breaks a Speed Record in This Mars Parachute Test
This extraordinary question may arouse some people’s interest when the mission (colonization of Mars) is realized. If Elon Musk realizes a mission colonization of Mars, then the big question will be a stable supply of food. The enormous costs of launching and resupplying resources from Earth will make that impractical.View More What Can Humans Eat on Mars When Elon Musk Colonizes Red Planet
Astronomers found out ghost dunes on Mars, they have acquired images of ghost dunes which is tall crescent-shaped sand dunes once existed on this red planet. As we know, Mars is a desert planet, and it is more like Earth than any other planet, but it is colder there than on Earth. Also just like Earth, the Martian deserts have massive dunes. Astronomers informed the finding in GeoSpace on July 10, 2018. The new research paper was just published in the Journal of Geophysical Research.View More Astronomers Has Discovered Ghost Dunes on Mars
NASA scientists have created a tiny chemistry lab MOMA for a rover to discover the signs on Mars of past or present life. “The toaster oven-sized lab, called the Mars Organic Molecule Analyzer or MOMA, a joint mission between the European Space Agency and the Russian space agency Roscosmos, with a significant contribution to MOMA from NASA”.View More Scientists Created Chemistry Lab Seek Evidence of Life on Mars
For the first time NASA is going to send a helicopter to Mars. The mission is planned to launch in July 2020. This Mars Helicopter is a small, autonomous rotorcraft that will show the viability and potential of heavier-than-air vehicles on the Red Planet.View More This Is the First Time When Mars Helicopter Flies on Mars
The NASA Mars InSight mission, which is set to launch on May 5, will try to gather as much data as possible about Earth’s neighbor in the solar system. InSight lander, which stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, will study mars quakes to know about the Martian crust, mantle and core.View More Why is it so important Landing InSight Mission to Mars?
Marsbee is a robotic flapping wing flyers. Its size is as the same as bumblebee size with cicada sized wings. The Marsbee is combined with sensors and wireless communication devices. The mobile base can act as a recharging station and main communication center. Why NASA wants to send Marsbee to the Red Planet. NASA explains:
“The objective of the proposed work is to increase the set of possible exploration and science missions on Mars by investigating the feasibility of flapping wing aerospace architectures in a Martian environment. The proposed architecture consists of a Mars rover that serves as a mobile base and a swarm of Marsbees.”View More Why NASA Wants to Send Marsbee Robotic Bees to Mars?
