    A comet will buzz Mars this Sunday (Oct. 19) in an epic encounter that has astronomers around the world tingling with excitement.

    The first people to set foot on Mars may navigate around the Red Planet using a map drawn up with the help of the masses here on Earth.

    An artist's illustration of the Inspiration Mars Foundation's spacecraft for a 2021 mission to Mars by a two-person crew. The spacecraft's launch was originally scheduled for 2018, however, the target date has now slipped. The private Mars mission would be a flyby trip around the Red Planet.

    A new video shows NASA's Mars rover Curiosity playing dune buggy, clambering over a drift of sand on its way toward a big Red Planet mountain.

    Mars One is gearing up to send an unmanned lander to the Red Planet that would follow in the mold of NASA's successful Mars landers.

    NASA engineers are looking for ways to reduce the wear and tear on the Mars rover Curiosity's wheels, which have accumulated an increasing number of dings and punctures over the last few months.

    Science meets Martian art in a new exhibition celebrating 10 years of Mars exploration by NASA's twin rovers Spirit and Opportuntiy.

    Mastcam mosaic of the Yellowknife Bay formation. This is a view from the base of an exposed section up through Sheepbed, Gillespie Lake, and basal Glenelg members. Locations of drill holes and Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectrometer (A PXS) measurements are shown. Image released Dec. 9, 2013.

    High-resolution image of a 1909 U.S. penny, as taken by the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on NASA's Curiosity rover in northern Gale crater on Mars, Oct. 2, 2013.

    Scientists are a step closer to solving a 40-year-old mystery about some unusual looking craters on Mars, called double-layered ejecta (DLE) craters.

    An optical image of a slice of Martian meteorite NWA 5298, mounted for growth history analysis of the crystals and isotopic dating using electron and ion beam techniques. The Martian lava flow cooled to form the interlocking mineral texture ~200 million years ago. Note dark patches are glass generated by heating during launch of the meteorite Earthward less than 20 million years ago.

    NASA's Mars rover Curiosity appears as a bluish dot near the lower right corner of this enhanced-color photo taken by the space agency's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on June 27, 2013. The rover's tracks are visible extending from its landing site in the left portion of the scene.

    NASA's Opportunity rover spotted clay minerals in an ancient rock on the rim of Mars' Endeavour Crater, suggesting that benign, neutral-pH water once flowed through the area. The pale rock in the upper center of this image, about the size of a human forearm, includes a target called "Esperance," which was inspected by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity.

    Mars Rat? A Martian rock that bears a passing resemblance to a rat is scuttling across the Internet with gusto, despite being just a rock.

    This space wallpaper shows the north polar ice cap of Mars, presented as a mosaic of 57 separate images from the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express.
