Russian and German physicists have offered an explanation for the new data obtained by Martian satellites, capturing the "escape" of hydrogen atoms from the upper Martian atmosphere into outer space.

A camera on the spacecraft's robotic arm snapped the photos on April 24 and 25, the 145th Martian day, or sol, of the mission.

NASA's Mars InSight lander has measured and recorded for the first time ever a likely "marsquake."

The long-standing debate on the existence of ancient oceans on Mars has been recently revived by evidence for tsunami resurfacing events that date from the Late Hesperian geological era.

When NASA's Curiosity Mars rover landed in 2012, it brought along eclipse glasses. The solar filters on its Mast Camera (Mastcam) allow it to stare directly at the Sun.

Martian methane releases are rare, episodic, and often debated, but scientists have discovered evidence of a methane emission in June 2013, which constitutes the first confirmation of a methane release on Mars.

Long ago on Mars, water carved deep riverbeds into the planet's surface--but we still don't know what kind of weather fed them.

NASA's first rover mission to Mars, the Pathfinder, imaged an extraterrestrial marine spillover landscape 22 years ago, according to a new paper by Planetary Science Institute Senior Scientist Alexis Rodriguez.

Opportunity's Last View Of Mars

Over 29 days last spring, NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity documented this 360-degree panorama from multiple images taken at what would become its final resting spot in Perseverance Valley.

Missions carrying humans to Mars will require on-site resources, and a project led by Planetary Science Institute (PSI) scientists Nathaniel Putzig and Gareth Morgan is mapping the availability of potential shallow water-ice sources across the surface of the Red Planet.

Signs Of Ancient Flowing Water On Mars

These images from ESA's Mars Express satellite show a branching, desiccated system of trenches and valleys, signs of ancient water flow that hint at a warmer, wetter past for the Red Planet.

A study published last year in the journal Science suggested liquid water is present beneath the south polar ice cap of Mars.

A Dune Field Near Nili Patera

In this image many sand dunes are visible. They have an elongated crescent form and are called "barchan dunes." They are formed by the continuous action of the wind blowing in the same direction.

For the past several weeks, NASA's InSight lander has been making adjustments to the seismometer it set on the Martian surface on Dec. 19.

NASA's Curiosity rover has taken its last selfie on Vera Rubin Ridge and descended toward a clay region of Mount Sharp.

Opportunity Rover Logs 15 Years On Mars

NASA's Opportunity rover begins its 15th year on the surface of Mars today.

Navigation software destined for the ExoMars 2020 mission to the Red Planet has passed a rover-based driving test at ESA's 'Mars Yard'.

InSight Places A Seismometer On Mars

NASA's InSight lander has deployed its first instrument onto the surface of Mars, completing a major mission milestone.

InSight Hears The Winds Of Mars

NASA's Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport InSight lander, which touched down on Mars just 10 days ago, has provided the first ever "sounds" of Martian winds on the Red Planet.

The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter is all set to receive the first signals from InSight - NASA's latest inhabitant of Mars.
