Last year, billionaire SpaceX founder and space-fan Elon Musk delivered an expansive, hour-long presentation, outlining his ambitious plan to get humanity to the Red Planet. Musk has recently published a research paper adapted from that presentation entitled "Making Humans a Multi-Planetary Species"...Continue Reading Elon Musk publishes 15-page manifesto outlining how to get humanity to Mars
Napoleon said that an army marches on its stomach and so, it seems, do astronauts. To help the crews of future Mars missions remain healthy, associate professor Dominic D'Agostino of the University of South Florida Hyperbaric Biomedical Research Laboratory will spend ten days on a simulated space journey in a laboratory on the bottom of the sea eating a special diet designed to counter the si
It's been said that the first Mars explorers will have to be prepared to take one for humanity. As various studies have shown, they risk permanent neural damage as well as an increased risk of leukemia and Alzheimer's disease. And now, scientists at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas have added to this list with a new study that shows how a deep-space mission to Mars could double astronauts'
While it looks like a barren wasteland today, Mars was once much more friendly towards life, and one of the main goals of the Curiosity rover mission was to determine if the Red Planet has ever harbored living organisms. The project has already discovered that the rover's landing site, Gale Crater, was once home to an ancient lake, and now a team at Los Alamos National Laboratory has found "h
NASA scientists have come together with the university of arizona to develop an inflatable greenhouse that can be used to grow vegetables in deep space.The post NASA designs inflatable greenhouse for sustainable farming on mars appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
    Finnish photographer and videographer Jan Fröjdman has a wide array of interests including nature, design, hot-air ballooning, but he also enjoys astronomy and space. Enter NASA’s High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) and it’s a match made in heaven. NASA produced high-resolution stereo images of the Martian surface over the past 12 yea
It took photographer and self-proclaimed space enthusiast Jan Fröjdman three months to produce a video turning NASA anaglyph images of Mars into a simulated flight over the planet. NASA's high-resolution imagery offers depth information and comes from HiRISE, a camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Fröjdman converted the still images into panning video clips using reference points
By now, it's pretty much a given that human beings will be going to Mars eventually. While Elon Musk, Boeing, NASA et al continue to duke it out to see who can take us to the Red Planet first, scientists have begun looking at another pertinent question, namely: Where are we going to live once we get there? The latest design concept unveiled by researchers at NASA's Langley Center makes use of
Mars and the far side of the Moon are on the itinerary for China's National Space Administration (CNSA), according to a new white paper released this week. The document, from the State Council Information Office, recaps the country's space-faring achievements over the past five years, and outlines its goals for the next five...Continue Reading Moon and Mars in China's five-year space planCate
Mars is home to many geological phenomena that we'd never see on our home planet, some of which are the peculiar networks of veiny troughs found around its South Pole. These "spiders" are usually thousands of years old, but now for the first time scientists seem to have caught some in their early stages, giving the researchers a new foothold in the mission to unlock the icy secrets of the ara is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
