Terraforming Mars: what it is and why we’d do something this crazy

Two planets are better than one. Here’s everything you need to know about Mars terraformation.

It used to rain so hard on Mars it shaped the planet’s geology

A first of its kind study found rain on Mars was quite abundant.

Turns out you can make harder-than-concrete bricks on Mars simply by compressing soil

That’s surprisingly convenient.

NASA is designing small away-from-home-ecosystems to make space exploration sustainable

Recycle everything!!!

The Martian atmosphere might be cruel and inhospitable but at least it has metal ions

Studying Mars’ ionosphere and its metal ions might explain how the planet lost most of its atmosphere (and liquid water).

Mars’ Arsia Mons and the dinosaurs went extinct at the same time. Coincidence?! Definitely

#sync.

From fiction to reality: scientists grow potatoes in Mars-like conditions

Interplanetary potato, yeah!

Geological deposits hint at ancient ocean on Mars’ surface

Can’t have a devastating water wave without water!

Curiosity’s wheel grousers show damage after five years of off-roading on Mars

:(

Magnets anchored on Mars’ orbit would make the planet a second Earth, NASA says
