(Phys.org) —NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has revealed to scientists slender dark markings—possibly due to salty water - that advance seasonally down slopes surprisingly close to the Martian equator.
(Phys.org)—Observations of wind patterns and natural radiation patterns on Mars by NASA's Curiosity rover are helping scientists better understand the environment on the Red Planet's surface.
(PhysOrg.com) -- NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has discovered the total amount of atmosphere on Mars changes dramatically as the tilt of the planet's axis varies. This process can affect the stability of liquid water, ...
Pop quiz: What spacecraft holds the record for longest-surviving mission on the bitterly cold and dusty surface of Mars? As of Thursday, there's a new - but possibly temporary - champion.
(PhysOrg.com) -- The recent warming trend in the Atlantic Ocean is largely due to reductions in airborne dust and volcanic emissions during the past 30 years, according to a new study.
CNN News called it a "good old-fashioned weather mystery." Scientists at Washington State University are calling it case closed.
(Phys.org)—A regional dust storm on Mars, tracked from orbit since Nov. 10, appears to be abating rather than going global.
(Phys.org)—A Martian dust storm that NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been tracking since last week has also produced atmospheric changes detectable by rovers on Mars.
Methane on Mars has long perplexed scientists; the short-lived gas has been measured in surprising quantities in Mars' atmosphere over several seasons, sometimes in fairly large plumes. Scientists have taken this to be evidence ...
