April 14, 2013 Communications between the Earth and Mars are going on a month-long hiatus, thanks to interference from the sun. That means NASA's spacecraft on Mars will be on their own until NASA's radio signals can reach them again.
April 9, 2013 Did the seeds of life on Earth begin on Mars? Are we part of Earth's first alien invasion? Adam Frank says we may be looking at a future full of discoveries in our own solar system that could reset our understanding of life and its origin.
March 26, 2013 The wilderness is not just a thing, it's a need. It's an idea that has grown up with humans and it will follow us from this planet to the next, and beyond. Commentator Adam Frank plots our future course.
September 27, 2012 NASA's Curiosity rover has found definitive proof that water once ran across the surface of Mars, the agency announced today.

August 15, 2012 NASA's Curiosity rover will soon begin to search for signs of life, past or present, on the red planet. But can we make sense of life in strange places? And if we don't find it, what will it mean to us?
August 7, 2012 The Curiosity rover on Mars shows that, perhaps, we are ready to solve our problems. It shows us that we can face impossible challenges and find real, lasting solutions.
July 9, 2012 The scene is stitched from 817 images taken by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity from Dec. 2011 to May.
May 10, 2012 With the darkest days of the Martian winter now over, NASA took its Opportunity Mars Rover for a drive this week. The rover had been stationary while its solar panels lacked enough sunlight to power its batteries.
August 14, 2011 No rain on mars but frost and fog are another story.
August 13, 2011 Are those dark streaks running down the canyon walls martian water?
August 10, 2011 A piece of U.S. property was recently driving around on the surface of Mars. Tens of millions of miles away from the debt crisis, the heat wave and other big events of the summer, NASA's rover Opportunity just completed a 13-mile trip to allow scientists to examine a Martian crater.
