Spacecraft landings and water evidence are just some of the cool things NASA Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has spotted in its 10 years after launching to the Red Planet.
The Earth and Mars will be on opposite sides of the sun this month, meaning we'll lose contact with our beloved Mars rovers and orbiters.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has spotted its roving buddy Curiosity on the Martian landscape, but the rover seems to be missing its tell-tale tracks in the red planet's dirt.
After Curiosity dramatically touched down on Mars in 2012, it kicked up some dirt that still hasn't faded from view.
Like a coworker looking over her shoulder in the office, Curiosity has a Martian colleague checking up on her progress from high above.
Here today, gone tomorrow; a bright layer of frost lining a crater wall is vanquished by the springtime sun -- and seen by a NASA Mars satellite high overhead.
The Martian surface is covered with a diverse array of landscapes and features, but this is one of the weirdest.
Although this crater rim is entering summer, its south-facing slopes are still festively frosted in ice.
