What if the ISS Becomes a Ghost Town?
Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: Humans have had a continual presence in space for 11 years onboard the International Space Station. Following the failure of a Russian rocket launch, mission planners are hoping that the streak won't be broken.

The Steps of Lunar Astronauts
Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: NASA´s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) captured the sharpest images ever taken from space of the Apollo 12, 14 and 17 landing sites. Images show the twists and turns of the paths made when the astronauts explored the lunar surface.

Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: Scientists are testing an experimental DNA analysis instrument in microgravity. The new technology could help monitor the health of astronauts exposed to radiation.

Nuclear Power Plants for Human Space Settlements
Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: Fission technology for surface power plants on the Moon, Mars and other planets could be far different from the familiar nuclear power stations here on Earth. The technology could provide continuous power for a variety of space missions, and could help make long-duration human missions to other worlds a reality.

Filling the Pantry for a Mission to Mars
Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: Providing food for astronauts may be one of the greatest challenges facing a human mission to Mars. The major challenge is to balance weight, food acceptability and resource utilization. Answers could be found in 'bioregenerative' systems that allow astronauts to grow some of their own food.
