It looks as if the Schiaparelli Mars landing ended not with a whimper, but a bang. According to ESA, images from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) indicate the unmanned spacecraft exploded on impact with the Martian surface after falling from as high as 13,000 ft (4,000 m). Show More Summary
Just a day after the arrival of ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter and its lander Schiaparelli, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has taken a photo of the landing site with its Context Camera, and things do not look good.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has spotted what appears to be the site where the European spacecraft crashed Wednesday
NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has identified new markings on the surface of the Red Planet that are believed to be related to ESA’s ExoMars Schiaparelli entry, descent and landing technology demonstrator module.
It will take weeks to understand exactly what happened, but images from Nasa’s Reconnaissance Orbiter show Schiaparelli’s parachute and landing site The landing site of a European spacecraft that was supposed to make a historic touchdown...Show More Summary
A NASA satellite in orbit around Mars appears to have spotted the remains of a European probe that crash-landed on the Red Planet on Wednesday. New pictures taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show a large, dark elliptical spot on the Martian surface that was probably made by the European...
Nasa's HiRISE camera, mounted on the 2005-launched Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, has been stationed above the planet for over ten years now. It continues to send back high-quality images; a new batch of over 600 has just been released. Show More Summary
Lakes and snowmelt-fed streams on Mars formed much later than previously thought possible, according to new findings using data primarily from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Part of a release of more than 1,000 new images
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has been orbiting mars for over a decade now, taking photos with regularity. Each month, the MRO will in turn send back its imagery, giving us a glimpse of what the Red Planet currently looks like. With its last delivery, the MRO sent 1,035 pictures, due to every 26 months, […]
NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has been sending photos back home nearly every month since 2005, expanding our knowledge of the red planet immeasurably. But this month it’s outdone itself, sending back 1,035 […]
image credit NASA) The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been orbiting the red planet and taking photos since its launch in 2005. NASA has now released 1035 photos of Mars' surface. The Presurfer
Taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, more than a thousand high-res photos were released by NASA and shed new light on Martian territory.
The HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter continues to dazzle.
In spite of the flowing gouges they leave behind, gullies on the Red Planet may not have been formed by liquid water, according to data from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The findings, described in Geophysical Research Letters, showcase the complexity of Martian geology and highlight how...
By examining swirling patterns left in ice topping the Red Planet’s north pole, scientists using radar data from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have put together an unprecedented look into our rusty neighbor’s most recent ice age. The findings, published in the journal Science, offer fresh...
San Antonio, Texas -- May 26, 2016 -- Using radar data collected by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a Southwest Research Institute-led team found evidence of an ice age recorded in the polar deposits of Mars. Ice ages on Mars are...Show More Summary
Data collected by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter suggests the Red Planet is going through an ice age.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has discovered evidence of ancient volcanoes on the surface of the Red Planet. They are believed to have erupted under a sheet of ice, despite the fact that they were discovered around 1,000 miles...Show More Summary
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter marked 10 years of circling the Red Planet earlier this month, sending back a continuing stream of amazing photos from the HiRISE camera managed by the University of Arizona. Phil Plait, who blogs at Bad Astronomy, posted a wonderful retrospective of spectacular HiRISE images, including some I had not seen before. Show More Summary
