NASA's latest image release from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has offered an up-close look at the real-world setting for sci-fi blockbuster The Martian. Snapped by the spacecraft's telescopic camera, the photos detail several Mars...Show More Summary
In another reminder that the Red Planet features a complex and active surface, the HiRISE camera aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has captured an image of a “dry ice avalanche” streaming down a cliff. Read more...
Using images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, NASA scientists have confirmed the discovery of a water theme park on the planet Mars. "The roughly two-square-mile area known as Six Flags Olympus Mons apparently provided an assortment of exciting rides and Martian family entertainment," said researcher Helmut Richtaffler.

Evidence for flows of liquid water has reportedly been detected on the surface of Mars by NASA's Reconnaissance Orbiter
Scientists have found what they think is evidence of extant, if brief, flowing water on Mars. In a NASA press conference today, scientists claimed that images and spectra taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter’s HiRISE camera showShow More Summary
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter finds strongest evidence yet that there is liquid water on the surface of the Red Planet, so there might also be life
NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter found traces of water that comes and goes on Mars—aka flowing water.
New findings from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has confirmed that mysterious lines on the surface of the planet are evidence of liquid water. CNET's Eric Mack spoke to the scientist behind the groundbreaking discovery.
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) Context Camera (CTX) is almost a silent star at Mars. The latest MRO data release brought the total number of available CTX images to over 70,000, covering well over 90% of the Red Planet at a stunning resolution of 6 meters per pixel.
It's been a while since I checked in with the University of Arizona's HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. They have just posted 122 new images with the September release and as usual the pictures are striking and amazing.Rather...Show More Summary
UFOlogists say that NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has photographed a UFO crash site on planet Mars. The MRO image of the alleged crash site shows what UFOlogists and scientists agree is a bizarre-looking impact crater in the Elysium Planitia plains that straddles the Martian equator.

Launched from Earth on July 21, 2005, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) is celebrating a decade in outer space, gathering a treasure of brilliant scientific observations and information.
The spacecraft has been critical to helping NASA scientists gain a greater understanding of the red planet
The science team of NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter wants your help in mapping out the weird and wonderful features of Mars' south polar region!
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has detected deposits of impact glass on the Red Planet that may provide a fresh avenue for investigating the question of whether life ever existed there. The hope is that glass forged in theShow More Summary
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has circled the Red Planet more than 40,000 times since arriving there in 2006. During that time, the spacecraft has spied everything from avalanches to dust devils to buried glaciers. And now, for the first time ever, it has detected deposits of glass nestled in impact craters on the Martian surface. Show More Summary
Talk about shattering expectations! NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has circled the Red Planet more than 40,000 times since arriving there in 2006. During that time, the spacecraft has spied everything from avalanches to dust devils...Show More Summary
The HiRISE camera mounted on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which is exploring the history of water on Mars, snapped this photo of a circular depression on the Red Planet's surface. Read more...
? Underneath its red, rusty exterior, it seems Mars has a cold heart of ice. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute used radar measurements from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and found that Mars has several glacier belts of water ice under a layer of dust. Show More Summary
