How do you train a computer to identify the type of Mars rocks it sees? #Mars #geology #machinelearning #deeplearning
Imagine what it would be like to be an astronaut landing on Mars for the first time. The red planet has little more than dust and rocks as well as some frozen water and gases in the air. If you wanted to build a shelter or structure, you would need to carry the materials from Earth in your cramped spaceship. What if we…
Scientists estimate that parts of Mars’ would be able to support up to one million microbes per kilogram of rock deep underground.
Space may be the last frontier of civilization, and Mars is an important planet for manned and unmanned space missions. Internationally, space programs are already looking into its possibilities. Since the surface of Mars is really different from Earth, a lot of research is dedicated to trying to simulate or replicate…
As the hunt for extraterrestrial life continues, scientists are giving rovers some new game changing abilities. With the "LEMUR", we may not be so far off from finding life on other planets!
Thus far, we have not found evidence of life on Mars. Is it truly a sterile desert, or are we simply looking in the wrong place? #Mars #NASA
Can #airplanes fly on #Mars? Maybe! Find out the perfect wing shape for flying in the thin Martian atmosphere.
Early Martian life may have used sulfur as an energy source Using an environment on Earth that simulates early Mars conditions, researchers found an abundance of bacteria that get their energy from sulfur-containing molecules, suggesting a new focus in the search for biosignatures on the Red Planet.

Humans are not built for Mars. Or rather, Mars isn't built for us, yet. Understanding the sacrifices such a massive undertaking needs is important to its success.
