When the operations team logged on today, we were prepared to pick up where Monday's team had left off in Curiosity's ongoing drill campaign at Zechstein.

Layers In A Crater In Nilosyrtis On Mars

This impact crater in the Nilosyrtis region of Mars contains numerous layers exposed along its floor. These layers formed long after the impact event and are likely deposits of dust and ice.

Understanding both the spatial and temporal distribution of hydrated (water-bearing) minerals on Mars is essential for deciphering the aqueous history of the planet.

Curtin University researchers have pinpointed the likely origin of a group of meteorites ejected from Mars, using a machine learning algorithm that analyses high-resolution planetary images.

This is a black and white image of rocks embedded in sand on Martian ground. Low hills are present in the horizon of the image against a clear sky. In the forefront smooth sand and small scattered rock particles are present.

The drive over the weekend was successful, gaining us more than 6 m in elevation - not bad for a weekend hike!

Springtime On A Martian Polar Cliff

This image shows the very steep outer scarp of the north polar layered deposits. Every year there is a lot of slope activity in the springtime when sunlight warms these slopes.

Frosted Gullies In Mars' Northern Summer

This HiRISE image shows gullies on a crater wall in the north polar region of Mars.

Making Martian Rocket Biofuel On Mars

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a concept that would make Martian rocket fuel, on Mars, that could be used to launch future astronauts back to Earth.

Frost-Covered Dunes In A Martian Crater

On the floor of this crater where there are no dunes, the ice forms an uninterrupted layer.

Thanks to two microphones aboard NASA's Perseverance rover, the mission has recorded nearly five hours of Martian wind gusts, rover wheels crunching over gravel, and motors whirring as the spacecraft moves its arm.

Pictures from NASA's latest six-wheeler on the Red Planet suggest the area's history experienced significant flooding events.

On Earth, river erosion is usually a slow-going process.

NASA will stand down from commanding its Mars missions for the next few weeks while Earth and the Red Planet are on opposite sides of the Sun. This period, called Mars solar conjunction, happens every two years.

An international team of researchers has used seasonal variations to identify likely sub-surface deposits of water ice in the temperate regions of Mars where it would be easiest for future human explorers to survive.

Perseverance Takes A Selfie On Mars

Here, using its WATSON camera, NASA's Perseverance Mars rover took this selfie over a rock nicknamed "Rochette," on Sept.10, 2021, the 198th Martian day, or sol, of the mission.

The lander cleared enough dust from one solar panel to keep its seismometer on through the summer, allowing scientists to study the three biggest quakes they've seen on Mars.

NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter provided a 3D view of a rock-covered mound during its 13th flight on Sept. 4.

Two interactive web experiences let you explore the Martian surface, as seen by cameras aboard the rover and orbiters flying overhead.

Some volcanoes can produce eruptions so powerful they release oceans of dust and toxic gases into the air, blocking out sunlight and changing a planet's climate for decades.
