Moody photo from Mars shows a giant crater loaded with ice

Moody photo from Mars shows a giant crater loaded with iceFlying over the frigid northern reaches of Mars, the orbiting Mars Express satellite captured images of the 50-mile wide Korolev crater filled with ice. Korolev is an especially alluring sight, not just because it's a well-preserved impact crater but because it's loaded with ice over a mile deep year round.  Launched 15 years ago by the European Space Agency (ESA), Mars Express often focuses on glaciers and ice in the Martian polar regions.  The Korolev crater's ice is resistant to melting during the warmer summer seasons because the massive plain of ice creates a "cold trap," ESA explains. When air travels above the crater, it cools and sinks over the ice, building a sort of cool "shield" over the ice.  The Mars Orbiter looking down upon the Korolev crater.Image: esaSo even as the seasons change, Korolev remains brimming with ice. Most Martian craters, even in cooler regions, don't remain full year-round.  As Mars Express zips over the desert planet, it takes photos of different strips of land, and then transmits the pictures back to Earth.  ESA scientists then combine the images together to build a coherent picture of different Martian landforms, dried-up lakes, and masses of frozen water.  These Korolev images above are composites of five different photos, each taken during a separate orbit across Mars. SEE ALSO: Scientists spot the farthest known object in our solar system, and it's pink Korolev is named for a giant in space history: rocket scientist Sergei Korolev.  Korolev headed the Soviet space program and famously beat the Americans into space. The Soviets, under Korolev's leadership, sent both the first human and satellite into space.  "He’s a key figure in space history — though he died much too early," space historian Robert Pearlman said. Mars Express continues to actively scour the red Martian terrain and transmit truly brilliant extraterrestrial images back to Earth. WATCH: NASA announces its servers were hacked

A tiny satellite says goodbye to Mars with gorgeous new photo

A tiny satellite says goodbye to Mars with gorgeous new photoParting is such sweet sorrow.  A farewell photo taken by a tiny satellite shows its final view of Mars as it flew by the red planet on Monday.  The satellite — called a cubesat — that took the photo is named MarCO-B and it performed quite the service for humanity before saying goodbye to Mars.  The small satellite and its twin MarCO-A beamed home data to Earth on Monday as the InSight lander made its successful touchdown on Mars. "This image was taken at about 12:10 p.m. PST (3:10 p.m. EST) while MarCO-B was flying away from the planet after InSight landed," NASA said in a statement, adding that the satellite was about 4,700 miles from Mars when the photo was snapped. The MarCO satellites are the first cubesats to travel to deep space, and their success shows that they probably won't be the last.  The satellites were responsible for much of the immediate data mission controllers got back from InSight during its harrowing landing on the red planet.  SEE ALSO: InSight beams home its first photo from the surface of Mars If more cubesats can launch with other big-ticket missions, it could make that kind of quick relay communication a reality in other deep parts of the solar system, and that's good for everyone. "The experimental MarCO CubeSats have also opened a new door to smaller planetary spacecraft,"  Michael Watkins, the director of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a statement.  "The success of these two unique missions [InSight and MarCO] is a tribute to the hundreds of talented engineers and scientists who put their genius and labor into making this a great day." Now, the two satellites are floating off farther into deep space, their missions over.

InSight is now NASA's eighth successful mission to land on Mars, and the spacecraft is designed to do something that no rover or lander has done before. The lander is expected to gather data about the geology and interior of Mars in order to help scientists understand exactly how the red planet formed and what exactly is going on within it.  InSight will listen for "marsquakes." Unlike earthquakes that are caused by tectonic plate movement, these quakes on Mars are thought to be caused by rocks cooling and contracting.  InSight will use those shakes on Mars to help map the Martian interior. For now, however, InSight is just getting started with its checkouts on Mars before the science can really begin. And while the MarCOs aren't able to listen out for the lander anymore, NASA will keep a close eye on the probe as it performs its science.

InSight Mission Lands On Mars, Beams Back First Photo From Its New Home

InSight Mission Lands On Mars, Beams Back First Photo From Its New HomeAfter an epic journey that lasted seven months and carried it more than 300 million miles through space, NASA’s historic InSight mission has finally landed on Mars. The InSight Mars lander touched down on Elysium Planitia, just north of the Martian equator, at around 2.54 p.m. EST earlier today — and has already sent home its first photo from its new home. According to NASA, mission engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, have picked up a radio signal — either coming from the InSight lander or from one of the two MarCO mini-satellites accompanying the mission — which let them know that the spacecraft has made contact with the Martian soil.
