The tiny Mars moon Phobos looms large on the sun's face in dramatic eclipse footage captured by NASA's Perseverance rover.
NASA's Mars rover Perseverance is scheduled to touch down on the Red Planet on Feb. 18, 2021. The new rover will search for signs of habitable environments on Mars and evidence of past microbial life. It will also cache samples of the Red Planet to return to Earth for a future Mars sample-return mission. See the latest news about NASA's Perseverance Mars rover here!
Perseverance just reached the remains of an ancient Red Planet river delta, a set of layered rocks that has long been the life-hunting rover's main science target.
One year ago today (April 19), NASA's Mars helicopter Ingenuity lifted into the Red Planet sky for the first time.
The 4-pound (1.8 kilograms) Ingenuity aced its 25th flight on the Red Planet last Friday (April 8), setting new personal bests for speed and distance.
NASA's newest Mars rover and its trusty helicopter companion were spotted all the way from space in a new photo.
NASA's Ingenuity helicopter completed its 24th Martian flight on Sunday (April 3), a short repositioning hop that covered 154 feet (47 meters) in 69.5 seconds.
Sound travels much more slowly on the Red Planet than it does on Earth but also behaves in some unexpected ways that could have strange consequences for communication on the planet.
The NASA-ESA campaign to haul Mars samples back to Earth will require two Red Planet landers instead of one. The change will delay the arrival of samples here by two years, to no earlier than 2033.
China's Tianwen 1 orbiter recently captured photos of China's Zhurong rover and NASA's Perseverance rover as the two wheeled robots explored their Martian surroundings.
NASA's Mars helicopter Ingenuity has done it again, soaring successfully on its 22nd Red Planet flight.
Ingenuity now has clearance to continue flying until at least September, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory announced today (March 15).
NASA's top-notch Red Planet geology rover is moving on to explore an ancient river delta now that its eighth rock sample is secured for future analysis.
Perseverance just socked away another Martian rock sample, the seventh that it has collected since landing on the Red Planet in February 2021.
On Friday (Feb. 25), Ingenuity notched yet another milestone, this one of the round-number variety — its 20th Martian sortie.
NASA's Perseverance rover has been on Mars for a full year now, but in some ways the robot is just getting started.
A year after arriving on the Red Planet, NASA's Ingenuity helicopter continues to push the limits of off-Earth flight.
NASA's Perseverance rover has now been exploring Mars for a full year, and it has captured some amazing photos during that stretch.
Ingenuity aced a 100-second sortie on Tuesday (Feb. 8), its 19th Red Planet flight overall but its first since Dec. 15. A dust storm pushed the liftoff date back by more than a month.
