NASA’s Curiosity rover has discovered organic molecules such as ammonia on Mars that could be indicators life once existed on the Red Planet
The discovery was made after NASA conducted a new technique in analyzing Martian soil
The images were captured in early July by NASA rover Curiosity.
NASA has marked the Curiosity rover’s ninth anniversary on Mars by unveiling a new panoramic image of the Martian landscape, a locale that may explain why the Red Planet became dry.
When exploring alien worlds, it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking at – and a fresh analysis of rock samples taken from the Gale crater on Mars suggests this ancient grit might not be the lake sediment we thought it was.
NASA’s Curiosity rover got a good look at a weirdly textured little rock formation that’s resisting the forces of wind and erosion on the red planet.
In 2011 the Curiosity Rover was sent to Mars to collect stones from a location where a lake used to exist. It is important because the fact that there was water could indicate that at some point there was life on the desert planet.
A group of scientists may have just pinpointed the location on Mars of a mysterious source of methane, a gas most often produced by microbes — and NASA’s Curiosity rover could be right on top of it.
A new paper enriches scientists’ understanding of where the rock record preserved or destroyed evidence of Mars’ past and possible signs of ancient life.
A rover finds methane. A spacecraft doesn’t. Which one is right?
