The red planet was once blue: Mars was covered in oceans 984 feet deep 4.5 billion years ago

A new study claims that Mars was covered in 984 feet of ocean 4.5 billion years ago

Now a desolate red desert, a new study claims that the planet Mars was once mostly blue. While researchers have long agreed that our red neighbor once held water, how much water it contained has been a matter of debate. Now, a new study reveals that 4.5 billion years ago, Mars was covered by 984 … Read more

NASA will launch a huge heat shield that looks like a flying saucer into space this week

If humans are ever to land safely on Mars, engineers will have to invent a spacecraft that can slow down enough to survive re-entry.  Fortunately, the US space agency may have a solution to the problem in the form of a large, flying saucer-like heat shield that will be launched into low Earth orbit this week.

If humans are ever to land safely on Mars, engineers will have to invent a spacecraft that can slow down enough to survive re-entry. In 2021, NASA’s Perseverance rover, known as “Seven Minutes of Terror,” came out unscathed after descending to the Red Planet using a primary parachute. But landing is more difficult for large … Read more
