The House of Representatives proposed $2.1 billion for NASA's planetary science budget, which would be an all-time high. Part of the increase would be used to start work on a new reconnaissance and communications orbiter.
The Red Planet's surface looks a lot like the scaly skin of an out-of-this-world dragon in this Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter image.
Sure, NASA has found signs of ancient water on Mars multiple times over the years, but now it's time to talk about something that's significantly more badass: molten Martian lava. NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO)...Show More Summary
Various researchers are often preoccupied with the quest for flowing water on Mars. However, this image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), shows one of the many examples from Mars where lava (when it was molten) behaved in a similar fashion to liquid water.
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera takes 600 photos of the moon every day.
Earlier this month, NASA managed to snap this astonishing image of the Curiosity rover, crawling up Mount Sharp on Mars. The photo was taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a sort of communications […] The post Overhead Shot of Curiosity Rover Shows Martian Desolation All Too Well appeared first on Geek.com.
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been taking images of the rover about every three months to monitor the surrounding area for changes.
Note: Larger version HERE, zoomed and enhanced (but not really) version HERE. This is a shot of the Mars Rover Curiosity (or possibly WALL-E) captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which, if you couldn't tell by the name, orbits the red planet. Show More Summary
That bright blue object in the center of the photo is NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover as imaged by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter earlier this month. From NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory: The car-size rover, climbing up lower Mount Sharp...Show More Summary
Using the most powerful telescope ever sent to Mars, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter caught a view of the Curiosity rover this month amid rocky mountainside terrain.
Using the most powerful telescope ever sent to Mars, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter caught a view of the Curiosity rover this month amid rocky terrain of Mount Sharp towering three miles above the ancient lakeshore of Gale Crater. "Gale crater...
Using data about the Moon’s terrain from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter as well as elevation data on Earth, NASA’s Ernie Wright created a very accurate map of where and when the August 2017 eclipse will occur in the United States. Standing...Show More Summary
Be sure to look where you’re walking on Mars. NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) last week stumbled upon a hole in the surface of the Red Planet’s South Pole. In the late summer […] The post NASA Discovers Mysterious Pit on Surface of Mars appeared first on Geek.com.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been studying Martian terrain since it was launched 12 years ago, recently discovered a feature on the Red Planet's surface that has left researchers baffled. Photo: NASA Read more... Permalink | Email this | Linking Blogs | Comments
This observation from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show it is late summer in the Southern hemisphere, so the Sun is low in the sky and subtle topography is accentuated in orbital images.
The latest evidence of surface frost was found by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been orbiting the moon since 2009.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Scientists using data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, have identified bright areas in craters near the moon's south pole that are cold enough to have frost present on the surface.
While the famed bright spot on dwarf planet Ceres got lots of attention in the past few years, it turns out that there are a few bright spots a bit closer to home. Analyzing data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), researchers have spotted bright areas on our own moon which, they say, are likely being caused by frost. Show More Summary
