Over the last two decades, scientists have found ice in many locations on Mars.

Ask any space explorer, and they'll have a favorite photograph or two from their mission.

An interplanetary mission led by the University of California, Berkeley, to put two satellites -- dubbed "Blue" and "Gold" -- into orbit around Mars has been officially authorized to prepare for launch in October 2024.

Perseverance's Drive To Citadelle

This annotated image depicts the ground track (indicated in white) of NASA's Perseverance rover since it arrived on Mars on Feb. 18, 2021.

Images of knobbly rocks and rounded hills are delighting scientists as NASA's Curiosity rover climbs Mount Sharp, a 5-mile-tall (8-kilometer-tall) mountain within the 96-mile-wide (154-kilometer-wide) basin of Mars' Gale Crater.

By combining observations from three international spacecraft at Mars, scientists were able to show that regional dust storms play a huge role in drying out the Red Planet.

NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter recently completed its 11th flight at the Red Planet, snapping multiple photographs during its trip.

Three Craters In Lunae Planum

This image was taken on 22 March 2021 in the Lunae Planum region [16.74°N, 300.9°E] of Mars by the CaSSIS camera on the ESA-Roscosmos ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO).

Mars is calling! NASA is seeking applicants for participation as a crew member during the first one-year analog mission in a habitat to simulate life on a distant world, set to begin in Fall 2022.

Data sent to Earth by NASA's Perseverance rover after its first attempt to collect a rock sample on Mars and seal it in a sample tube indicate that no rock was collected during the initial sampling activity.

This photo was taken on March 15, 2021, by the digital exploration camera (EXI) of the Hope Probe, from a height of up to 1325 km above Mars, and the image shows the volcano area known as (Elysium Planetia) - Elysium Planitia) Resolution up to 145 m / pixel.

What lies beneath the frozen surface of Mars' south polar region has been a recent hot topic among researchers, and a new paper by Planetary Science Institute Research Scientist Isaac Smith refines the answer, pouring cold water on the subglacial lake theory.

A Stunning Martian Vista

This image was taken by the NAV_LEFT_B camera onboard NASA's Mars rover Curiosity on Sol 3188 (2021-07-25T19:17:23.000Z)

A dust storm that engulfed Mars in 2018 destroyed a vortex of cold air around the planet's south pole and brought an early spring to the hemisphere.

InSight Mission: Mars Unveiled

Using information obtained from around a dozen earthquakes detected on Mars by the Very Broad Band SEIS seismometer, developed in France, the international team of NASA's InSight mission has unveiled the internal structure of Mars.

Ingenuity, the helicopter that arrived on the Red Planet on the Mars Perseverance rover, has made nine flights on Mars. Ingenuity's historic achievement is the first powered flight on a terrestrial body other than Earth.

It has been a week of heightened apprehension on the Mars Helicopter team as we prepared a major flight challenge for Ingenuity.

A new paper enriches scientists' understanding of where the rock record preserved or destroyed evidence of Mars' past and possible signs of ancient life.

Two research teams, using data from the European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter, have recently published results suggesting that what were thought to be subsurface lakes on Mars may not really be lakes at all.

An earlier discovery of liquid water lakes beneath Mars' south pole may not be as wet as believed, a new paper says.
