      A #Marslanding is a landing of a spacecraft on the surface of Mars. Of multiple attempts Mars landings by robotic, unmanned spacecraft, seven were successful. There have also been studies for a possible manned mission to Mars, including a landing, but none have been attempted.

    NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, Expedition 36 flight engineer, uses a digital still camera during a session of extravehicular activity (EVA) as work continues on the International Space Station. A little more than one hour into the spacewalk on July 16, 2013, European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano (out of frame) reported water floating behind his head inside his helmet. The water was not an immediate health hazard for Parmitano, but Mission Control decided to end the spacewalk early.
