Should we stop visiting the Moon’s poles?

January 6th, 2021

The Moon has water ice hiding near its poles, which is something that is a fairly recent discovery.  The ice could hold clues about where the water on Earth came from and tell us a lot about the history of the Earth-Moon system.  An increasing number of missions to the Moon’s poles could potentially contaminate …

Researchers think they’ve spotted signatures of liquid water hiding out beneath the surface of Mars. The south pole in particular is apparently a hot spot for subglacial lakes, according to data from the Mars Express spacecraft. Future missions could investigate the claims and provide proof. Just exactly how much liquid water is on Mars? If …

Rivers flowed on Mars for at least 100,000 years, researchers say

May 7th, 2020

Mars had vast rivers of flowing water for tens of thousands of years, scientists now say. The discovery is based on images sent back by NASA’s Mars orbiter which revealed sediment deposits and telltale signs of flowing water on the surface of the planet. The rivers date back 3.7 billion years, so it will be …

Ancient Mars may have had received water from two major sources

April 1st, 2020

Ancient Mars may have received its wealth of water from a couple of major sources, new research suggests.  Studying the content of Martian meteorites that arrived on Earth revealed different hydrogen isotopes that hint at the planet’s watery history.  A small amount of water and ice remains on Mars today, but the planet is believed …
