07.03.07 - A giant dust storm brewing for more than a week on Mars has become worse and is affecting surface operations of the Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity.
06.28.07 - NASA's Mars rover Opportunity is scheduled to begin a descent down a rock-paved slope into the Red Planet's massive Victoria Crater.
05.08.07 - A U.S. Air Force C-17 cargo aircraft carried NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander spacecraft Monday, May 7, from Colorado to Florida, where Phoenix will start a much longer trip in August.
05.03.07 - NASA's Mars Rover Spirit has found evidence of an ancient volcanic explosion. One strong clue is a bomb sag, which on Earth is found when a rock blown skyward by a volcanic explosion falls into soft deposits.
04.13.07 - After studying Mars four times as long as originally planned, NASA's Mars Global Surveyor orbiter appears to have succumbed to battery failure caused by a complex sequence of events involving the onboard computer memory and ground commands.
04.04.07 - Mars scientist Diana Blaney studies the Red Planet from Hawaii.
03.27.07 - Engineers for NASA's Mars Odyssey mission are examining data from the orbiter to determine whether onboard backup systems never used by the 6-year-old spacecraft could still be available if needed.
03.22.07 - NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter put itself into safe mode -- a precautionary status with minimized activities -- on March 14. It remained healthy and in communication with Earth, but with no science observations, while the flight team examined engineering data. On March 20, the team brought the spacecraft back out of safe mode.
03.15.07 - New measurements of Mars' south polar region indicate extensive frozen water. The polar region contains enough frozen water to cover the whole planet in a liquid layer approximately 11 meters (36 feet) deep. A joint NASA-Italian Space Agency instrument on the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft provided these data.
03.14.07 - Some bright Martian soil containing lots of sulfur and a trace of water intrigues researchers who are studying information provided by NASA's Spirit rover.
02.15.07 - Liquid or gas flowed through cracks penetrating underground rock on ancient Mars, according to a report based on some of the first observations by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
02.07.07 - NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft this month is set to surpass the record for the most science data returned by any Mars spacecraft. While the mission continues to produce data at record levels, engineers are examining why two instruments are intermittently not performing entirely as planned.
01.11.07 - NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has a new project manager.
01.10.07 - NASA has formed an internal review board to look more in-depth into why NASA's Mars Global Surveyor went silent in November 2006 and recommend any processes or procedures that could increase safety for other spacecraft.
01.08.07 - On Monday, NASA selected for concept study development two proposals for future robotic missions to Mars.
12.28.06 - NASA's twin Mars rovers, nearing the third anniversary of their landings, are getting smarter as they get older.
12.13.06 - Mars is showing scientists its older, craggier face buried beneath the surface, thanks to a pioneering sounding radar co-sponsored by NASA aboard the European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter.
12.13.06 - Layers on Mars are yielding history lessons revealed by instruments flying overhead and rolling across the surface.
12.06.06 - NASA's Mars robotic missions are performing so well, they are being prepared for additional overtime work.
