Ancient microbes triggered a climate change on Mars that made the planet less habitable, which may have ultimately led to their extinction, a new climate modeling study suggests.
Scientists have acknowledged for months that the mission's end was near, and now, a continent-size dust storm is darkening the Martian skies, further impacting power production.
In new research, we used data from InSight to detect and locate four high-speed meteoroid collisions, and then tracked down the resulting craters.
Scientists revisiting a puzzling signal from the south pole of Mars have suggested a new potential explanation, and it doesn't bode well for hopes of finding liquid water on the Red Planet.
Mars may be a freeze-dried planet now, but once, it was supposedly (almost) another Earth, with flowing water that froze into hulking mountains of ice.
