The possibility that life was shared between Earth and Mars could be tested with a DNA analyzer. One research team has built a prototype and plans field tests on a South American volcano.

Spirit's Solar Panels Stuck Towards Southern Sky
Topic: Mars
02/13/10
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover, Spirit, has now parked for the winter on Mars. However, the rover's position has its solar panels pointed away from the Sun. If the rover can not get enough sunlight, it will be forced to go into hibernation.

Crater Layers Like Pages in a Martian History Book
Topic: Mars
02/12/10
Exposed rock layers near the center of a crater on Mars reveal a record of major environmental change on the red planet. This record of Mars' history could help astrobiologists understand whether or not habitable environments once existed on Mars.

IceBite Blog: Saying Farewell to a Frozen World
Topic: Mars
02/01/10
NASA´s IceBite team are studying one of the few spots on Earth where the terrain resembles that of the Phoenix landing site on Mars. The place: a mile above sea level in Antarctica´s Dry Valleys. The goal: to test ice-penetrating drills for future Mars missions. Click 'Ask a Scientist' to ask the science team questions.

Pick a Pixel on Mars
Topic: Mars
01/29/10
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is now taking suggestions from the public on which sights to photograph on the martian surface. MRO has returned an immense amount of data for astrobiologists trying to understand the past habitability of Mars, and now members of the public have a chance to participate in further exploration of the red planet.

A Stationary Spirit
Topic: Mars
01/27/10
NASA has now designated the Mars Exploration Rover, Spirit, a 'stationary science platform'. For months, the rover has been unable to free itself from a sand trap on Mars. Although Spirit is now immobile, the rover will continue to perform scientific studies that will help astrobiologists understand the past environment of Mars.

Spirit Struggles While Opportunity Rocks
Topic: Mars
01/24/10
NASA's Mars exploration rovers continue to return science data that will help astrobiologists understand the past environment of Mars. Opportunity has discovered a unique rock that is allowing scientists to glimpse deep inside Mars. Meanwhile, Spirit has been struggling to free itself from a difficult sand trap.

Hints of Hesperian Lakes
Topic: Mars
01/13/10
New satellite images suggest that the surface of Mars was warm enough to sustain lakes three billion years ago. This period of time on Mars was previously thought to be too cold and arid for liquid water to persist. The data may have implications in determining the habitability of ancient Mars.
