Hot Topic Solar System Mars
 
Google Mars
Topic: Mars
02/07/09
NASA and Google have announced a new 'Mars mode' in Google Earth. Now, everyone can navigate three-dimensional views of the Red Planet - through the eyes of Mars rovers and other Mars missions. Google Mars 3D will also serve as a platform for scientists to share data.

Methane Suggests Mars Not Dead
Topic: Mars
01/16/09
The first definitive detection of methane in the atmosphere of Mars indicates that the planet is either biologically or geologically active. The finding raises interesting questions about the potential for life on Mars today.

Methane-Spewing Martians?
Topic: Mars
01/15/09
The methane found on Mars could be a sign of life on the red planet. Researchers are devising an instrument to measure the isotopic abundances that could distinguish a biological origin from a geological one.

Astrobiology Top 10: Liquid Water in the Martian North? Maybe.
Topic: Mars
01/02/09
Astrobiology Magazine is looking back over 2008, highlighting the top 10 astrobiology stories of the year. The top story is NASA´s Phoenix mission. The lander arrived on Mars on May 25, and it conducted several tests of the martian soil and atmosphere. One surprising discovery was the presence of the chemical compound perchlorate in the soil.

Missing Mars Mineral Materalizes
Topic: Mars
12/23/08
Researchers using NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have identified carbonate minerals on the martian surface, indicating that the planet had different types of watery environments in its past. The discovery has important implications in determining if Mars was once habitable.

Orbit Determines Climate
Topic: Mars
12/10/08
New research shows evidence of ancient climate change on Mars caused by variations in the planet's tilt relative to the sun. The findings may help scientists understand if Mars was habitable for life at some point in the planet's past.

MSL Delayed
Topic: Mars
12/07/08
NASA has pushed back the launch of the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) until the fall of 2011. The original launch window is not possible because additional testing must be performed to ensure mission success. On Mars, MSL will study the early martian environment.

Simulating Mars on Earth
Topic: Mars
12/04/08
By simulating conditions at and below the surface of Mars, experiments now suggest that bacterial life could exist below its sterile surface layer of soil.

Buried Martian Glaciers
Topic: Mars
11/25/08
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has identified vast glaciers of water ice hidden beneath blankets of rocky debris on the martian surface. The glaciers are present at much lower latitudes than any ice previously found on Mars.
