New NASA study suggests Mars is hiding a lot of water

March 16th, 2021

When you look at Mars today you see a mostly dry, dusty orb with a thin atmosphere, lots of wind, and a mysterious history. That wasn’t always the case, of course, and over the past decade or so scientists have produced a lot of evidence to suggest that Mars was once very, very wet. In …

Hubble just spotted a planet that might be on its second atmosphere

March 11th, 2021

One of the only reasons we’re all able to live our lives on this planet is that Earth was blessed with a robust atmosphere. That’s something that not all planets have, and scientists are still a little hazy on exactly what conditions during a planet’s formation and the following billions of years result in an …

NASA’s Perseverance takes its first steps, er, I mean rolls

March 9th, 2021

It’s now been a couple of weeks since NASA’s Perseverance rover landed safely on Mars. The mission almost never left Earth due to the coronavirus pandemic but NASA managed to squeeze the launch in at the very last moment and, after months of travel, the rover managed to stick its landing perfectly. Of course, the …

The Perseverance rover just flexed for all the hot Martian babes

March 4th, 2021

NASA’s shiny new Perseverance rover has been hanging out on the Martian surface for about two weeks now. It hasn’t conducted much in the way of scientific observation, but that’s because it’s still waking up from the months-long, ice-cold nap that it took during the trip from Earth to the Red Planet. The rover appears …

Humans are already dumping garbage on Mars

March 1st, 2021

NASA’s Mars 2020 mission arrived at the Red Planet two weeks ago, and we’re just now getting our first look at the landing site from above. The ExoMars orbiter, which is a joint project between the European Space Agency and Russia’s Roscosmos, flew over the Jezero Crater where the rover landed and took some snapshots …

Life from Earth might survive on Mars, but not for long

February 27th, 2021

NASA goes to great lengths to prevent Earthly microbes from hitching a ride on missions to other worlds like Mars. Scientists fear that microorganisms from Earth might contaminate other planets or, even worse, throw off the search for extraterrestrial life. New research suggests that NASA’s concerns are well warranted, as microbes from Earth could likely …

NASA hid a message in its recent Mars rover landing

February 25th, 2021

NASA’s Mars Perseverance rover landing was a huge event last week, but there was probably something you missed. During the landing, cameras affixed to the rover’s descent hardware captured images of the massive parachute with a very unique pattern. It didn’t take long for internet sleuths to decipher the code and figure out what it …

This is where NASA wants to send its new rover

February 24th, 2021

NASA’s Mars rover Perseverance landed in the Jezero crater last week after a months-long journey to the Red Planet. The rover has a long life ahead of it on Mars, and NASA scientists want to make sure they look in the most promising places for signs of past life on the planet. An ancient river …

NASA’s Mars helicopter just hit a major milestone

February 23rd, 2021

The Perseverance rover is the star of the Mars 2020 mission, but the Mars Ingenuity helicopter is one heck of an opening act.  The helicopter rode to Mars while strapped to the belly of the large rover, and NASA has big plans for the tiny aircraft. For the first time since landing, NASA has checked …
