Worst dust storm in the history of human observation of Mars presents an unprecedented opportunity to study the critical weather pattern.

Mars' north polar layered deposits comprise a thick stack of icy layers.

A storm of tiny dust particles has engulfed much of Mars over the last two weeks and prompted NASA's Opportunity rover to suspend science operations.

One of the thickest dust storms ever observed on Mars has been spreading for the past week and a half. The storm has caused NASA's Opportunity rover to suspend science operations, but also offers a window for four other spacecraft to learn from the swirling dust.

NASA engineers attempted to contact the Opportunity rover today but did not hear back from the nearly 15-year old rover.

This HiRISE image captures a new, dated (within about a decade) impact crater that triggered a slope streak.

NASA engineers received a transmission from Opportunity on Sunday morning -- a positive sign despite the worsening dust storm.

NASA's Curiosity rover has found new evidence preserved in rocks on Mars that suggests the planet could have supported ancient life, as well as new evidence in the Martian atmosphere that relates to the search for current life on the Red Planet.

In early Martian summer, at the time NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter acquired this image, the dunes are almost free of their seasonal ice cover.

NASA's Curiosity rover could soon be drilling rocks on Mars again.

The Mars Helicopter, a small, autonomous rotorcraft, will travel with the Mars 2020 rover mission, currently scheduled to launch in July 2020, to demonstrate the viability and potential of heavier-than-air vehicles on Mars.

This movie, based on images taken by ESA's Mars Express, showcases the 102 km wide Neukum Crater in the southern hemisphere of Mars.

A Close Look At The Sands Of Mars

Using an onboard focusing process, the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) aboard NASA's Mars rover Curiosity created this product by merging two to eight images previously taken by the MAHLI, located on the turret at the end of the rover's robotic arm.

The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter has returned the first images of the Red Planet from its new orbit.

As Curiosity rover marches across Mars, the red planet's watery past comes into clearer focus.

Starting next year, scientists will get their first look deep below the surface of Mars.

Mars Curiosity Celebrates Sol 2,000

NASA's Mars Curiosity rover just hit a new milestone: its two-thousandth Martian day, or sol, on the Red Planet. An image mosaic taken by the rover in January offers a preview of what comes next.

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million years earlier and were not as deep as once thought.

Asteroids and comets appear to be a much more important suppliers of organic molecules on Mars than expected.

Curiosity Tests a New Way to Drill on Mars

NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has conducted the first test of a new drilling technique on the Red Planet since its drill stopped working reliably.
