Scarce Shelter On Mars
Moffett Field CA (SPX) Jun 05, 2009
Extremophile bacteria can tough it out in the Siberian permafrost, but the environment of Mars may still be too hostile for such hardy life. That's the finding of a recent study conducted by Andrew C. Schuerger, a microbiologist at the University of Florida and the Space Life Sciences Lab at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and colleagues. "Very seldom have microbes that grow ... read more

    Meteorite Bombardment May Have Made Earth More Habitable
    London, UK (SPX) Jun 02, 2009
    Large bombardments of meteorites approximately four billion years ago could have helped to make the early Earth and Mars more habitable for life by modifying their atmospheres, suggests the results of a paper published in the journal Geochimica et Cosmochima Acta. When a meteorite enters a planet's atmosphere, extreme heat causes some of the minerals and organic matter on its outer crust ... more

    China to launch Mars space probe
    Shanghai, China (UPI) May 29, 2009
    China's first Mars probe has completed testing and is on target for launch, the Shanghai Academy of Space Flight Technology said Friday. The Yinghuo-1 is to be launched later this year by a Russian carrier rocket and will go into orbit around Mars in 2010 after a 10-month, 236-million mile journey, Xinhua, China's state-run news agency, reported Friday. Yinghuo -- Chinese for ... more

    Evidence For Liquid Water On Early Frozen Mars
    Sunnyvale CA (SPX) Jun 01, 2009
    NASA scientists modeled freezing conditions on Mars to test whether liquid water could have been present to form the surface features of the Martian landscape. Researchers report that fluids loaded with dissolved minerals containing elements such as silicon, iron, magnesium, potassium and aluminum, can remain in a liquid state at temperatures well below freezing. The results of this resear ... more

    Spirit Mars Rover Team Working On An Exit Strategy
    Pasadena CA (JPL) May 25, 2009
    Rover team members continue their recovery strategy to extricate Spirit from the loose, soft terrain on the west side of "Home Plate." The rover continues to conduct extensive remote sensing observations of the local terrain. With the extra energy Spirit has gained from recent solar array dust cleaning events, morning UHF relay passes have been added. A low-voltage continuity test of the ... more

    Rover Teams Report Rich Body Of Research From Victoria Crater
    Ithaca NY (SPX) May 25, 2009
    From views of spectacularly layered cliff walls and sulfate-rich rock to the detection of tiny hematite "blueberries" and probable meteor debris, the Mars rover Opportunity's two-year exploration of Victoria Crater has yielded a wealth of information about the planet's geologic history - and supported previous findings indicating that water once flowed on the planet's surface. As Opportuni ... more

    NASA Rover Sees Variable Environmental History At Martian Crater
    Pasadena CA (SPX) May 25, 2009
    One of NASA's two Mars rovers has recorded a compelling saga of environmental changes that occurred over billions of years at a Martian crater. The Mars rover, Opportunity, surveyed the rim and interior of Victoria Crater on the Red Planet from September 2006 through August 2008. Key findings from that work, reported in the May 22 edition of the journal Science, reinforce and expand what ... more

    Research Demonstrates Potential For Liquid Water On Present-Day Mars
    Fayetteville AK (SPX) May 25, 2009
    Researchers at the University of Arkansas have shown that salts formed from perchlorates discovered at the Phoenix landing site have the potential to be found in liquid solution under the temperature and pressure conditions on present-day Mars. Research professor Vincent F. Chevrier and graduate students Jennifer Hanley and Travis S. Altheide report their findings in the current issue of ... more
