For climbing robots, the sky's the limit

Robots can drive on the plains and craters ofMars, but what if we could explore cliffs, polar caps and other hard-to-reach places on the Red Planet and beyond? Designed by engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in ...

Ice-squeezed aquifers might create marsquakes
