An unconventional research method allows for a new look at geologic features on Earth, revealing that some of the things we see on Mars and other planets may not be what they seem.
NASA says the robotic arm on the Curiosity rover is moving again after a short circuit temporarily halted its work on Mars.
On the boundary between the heavily cratered southern highlands and the smooth northern lowlands of Mars is an area rich in features sculpted by water and ice.
