Massive Impacts May Have Warmed Ancient Mars, ow.ly/bjjcx via @SPACEdotcom
Cosmic impacts that once bombed Mars might have sent temperatures skyrocketing on the Red Planet in ancient times, enough to set warming of the surface on a runaway course, researchers say. According to scientists, these findings could potentially help explain how this cold, dry world might have once sustained liquid water and conditions potentially friendly for life.

@nydailynews: Photo of Earth taken by Russian satellite provides stunning view, t.co/2tZmBP1l
More than eight years into its mission, Nasa's Opportunity rover still gets stunning views of Mars. This three-wavelength, false-colour image captures the rover's own shadow in light from the end of its 2,888th Martian day. In the foreground is the western rim of the vast Endeavour crater, where Opportunity passed the Martian winter.
