The First Martian Marathon

The First Martian Marathon - May 19, 2015

On Earth, a fast runner takes a few hours to complete a marathon. On Mars, it's taken 11 years. NASA's Opportunity rover crossed that finish line in 2015.

Rover Road Trip

Rover Road Trip - May 08, 2015

Getting a head start on summer, Curiosity is planning a road trip to Logan's Pass on Mars. Just like Earthlings, the rover relies on a highway map and takes scenic detours along the way.

CRISM: Exploring the Geology of Mars

CRISM: Exploring the Geology of Mars - May 04, 2015

Christina Beck of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory describes how she and other researchers use data from the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) Instrument, a spectrometer built at APL aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Beck explains how CRISM hyperspectral images are used to understand the history and formation of Valles Marineris, one of the largest canyons in the solar system, and how the data is used to unravel the ancient environments of Mars.

Crazy Engineering: Mars Helicopter - January 22, 2015

JPL engineers are working on a small helicopter that could 'scout' a trail for future Mars rovers, but getting a chopper that could fly in the Martian atmosphere is tricky.

Found: Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Locates Beagle 2 Lander

Found: Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Locates Beagle 2 Lander - January 16, 2015

Tim Parker: The movie you're watching here is a sequence of 3 HiRISE images that were taken of an object that might be the Beagle 2 lander in the Isidis Planitia. It was seen first as a series of bright spots. These bright spots are not uncommon in spacecraft images as cosmic rays strike the CCD. It's in 2 of the HiRISE images. So we know they're on the ground. They're not artifacts of a cosmic ray strike on the CCD. The third image was taken recently. And I've taken the color channel from that third image and I've used it to colorize the first two. The object itself seems to have different points on it that are catching glints from one image to another. From this, we are interpreting that we may actually be looking at the Beagle 2 lander. And that it's actually in some deployed condition. Whether all the panels have been opened up or not is yet to be determined by the Beagle team.
