NASA's Perseverance rover captured video of a dust devil moving along the western rim of Mars' Jezero Crater on Aug. 30, 2023.
Mars, the Red Planet, is the fourth planet from the sun.
Reference The only planet that continues 'out of the loop' in October is Mars, which will remain out of sight, too near the vicinity of the sun to be seen right through the end of the year.
NASA is forming a response team after an independent review board examined the agency’s ongoing plans and objectives for its upcoming mission to retrieve samples from Mars.
This spot on Mars has preserved information about ancient landslides and evidence of Red Planet water.
NASA's Ingenuity Mars helicopter soared higher than ever before over the weekend, getting 66 feet (20 meters) above the ground on its 59th Red Planet flight.
A new initiative from the Mars Society suggests a new institute be established that could help develop the technologies needed for humans to settle on the Red Planet.
The challenges of settling Mars stretch beyond the boundaries of rocket technology, impacting our biology and fundamentally questioning our identity as a species.
NASA's Perseverance Mars rover just snapped a new photo of a Red Planet rock that looks a lot like an avocado.
One researcher hypothesizes that experiments carried out by NASA's Viking landers in 1976 could have inadvertently killed microbes living in Martian rocks. Other experts are skeptical.
Originally designed for a simple technology demonstration, Ingenuity has far exceeded its initial one-month, five-flight mission.
The Perseverance rover's MOXIE experiment produced a total of 122 grams of oxygen on Mars. At its most efficient, it generated 12 grams of the life-sustaining element every hour.
NASA's Ingenuity Mars helicopter flew for the 57th time on Sept. 3, a sortie that pushed the robot's total Red Planet air time over 100 minutes.
NASA's Ingenuity Mars helicopter flew for the 56th time last week, staying aloft for nearly 2.5 minutes on a sortie that covered 1,344 feet (410 meters) of ground.
The sun has launched a surprise coronal mass ejection directly at Mars, which could spark auroras on the Red Planet and potentially erode part of Mars' remaining atmosphere when it hits on Sept. 1.
A wrinkled patch of land near the volcano's northern region likely formed when blisteringly hot lava oozed out of the summit millions of years ago, hitting water ice at the mountain's base.
Mars settlements could operate with much fewer people than previously thought, a new study found, while also demonstrating the type of person best suited to a stay up to 28 years on the Red Planet.
Because oxygen takes up valuable weight aboard spacecraft, space mission planners are interested in the idea of creating oxygen right there on Mars with raw Martian materials.
