     Mars North Pole

    MarsESA has published a picture of the North Pole of Mars, from pictures built up from imagery taken over several years, to produce a complete picture of the North Polar region.

    The ice cap is a permanent fixture, but in the winter season – as it is now in early 2017 – temperatures are cold enough for around 30 percent of the carbon dioxide in the planet’s atmosphere to precipitate onto the cap, adding a seasonal layer up to a metre thick. During the warmer summer months most of the carbon dioxide ice turns directly into gas and escapes into the atmosphere, leaving behind the water-ice layers.

     Mars Polar Lander wreck found (maybe)

    Marsrdw writes "Scientists have been examining new images of the surface of Mars. They have seen what they think could be the crash site of NASA's Mars Polar Lander probe. The Lander was to touch down near the South Polar regions of Mars in December 1999. "

     Phobos Grunt not dead yet

    MarsOn Tuesday, 22 November at 20:25 UT, ESA's tracking station at Perth, Australia, established contact with Russia's Phobos-Grunt spacecraft, which is currently stranded in a parking orbit around Earth. It may already be too late to send it to Mars, even if it can be reactivated, as the launch window has closed.

     Water (and life?) under Olympus Mons?

    MarsIn modeling the formation of Olympus Mons with an algorithm known as particle dynamics simulation, McGovern and Morgan determined that only the presence of ancient clay sediments could account for the volcano's asymmetric shape. The presence of sediment indicates water was or is involved.
