Why is NASA on a historic journey to Mars? Evidence suggests that Earth's next-door neighbor once had perfect conditions for life... And may still. Don't you want to find out!?
These days you can't seem to go anywhere in the Internet without seeing #JourneyToMars slapped on Tweets about, well, everything that NASA does - regardless of how it is actually related to sending humans to Mars.
India's Mars Orbiter Spacecraft is in its 100th orbit around Mars today (Start : June 22, 2015 End: June 25, 2015).
When NASA launches its next mission on the journey to Mars - a stationary lander in 2016 called InSight - the flight will include two CubeSats. This will be the first time CubeSats have flown in deep space. If this flyby demonstration is successful, the technology will provide NASA the ability to quickly transmit status information about the main spacecraft after it lands on Mars.
The high seas of Mars may never have existed, according to a new study that looks at two opposite climate scenarios of early Mars and suggests that a cold and icy planet billions of years ago better explains water drainage and erosion features seen on the planet today.

Here on Earth, we are used to the wind shaping our environment over time, forming smooth, sculpted rocks and rippling dunes. In this way, Mars is more similar to Earth than you might expect.
Testing is underway on NASA's next mission on the journey to Mars, a stationary lander scheduled to launch in March 2016.
At first glance, the region covered by this latest Mars Express image release appears to be pockmarked with impact craters. But the largest structure among them may hold a rather explosive secret: it could be remains of an ancient supervolcano.
Europe's next spacecraft to Mars is seen undergoing vibration testing at Thales Alenia Space, in Cannes, France, in preparation for its launch next year.
Dr. Daniel Kraft visited NASA Johnson Space Center to talk about his vision of the future of medical technologies.
The blueprints and science goals for the first Arab mission to Mars have been revealed for the first time. The Emirates Mars Mission probe, named "Hope", will create mankind's first integrated model of the Red Planet's atmosphere.
The non-profit Explore Mars Inc. group today released its first annual Humans to Mars Report. According to Explore Mars the report "provides updates on challenges, plus progress in areas such as mission architecture design and development, scientific discoveries, policy, public perception, international cooperation and competition, and new private capabilities".
NASA has robots and rovers on the surface of Mars and is planning on sending humans there as soon as technically possible, but there are steppingstones to getting there, conducting valuable scientific research, and returning home safely.
