The Mysteries of Mars
Mars might not be the final frontier, but could it be the next? Smaller than Earth, Mars has two moons—Phobos and Deimos—a 687-day-year and contains an atmosphere generally populated by carbon dioxide and intense dust storms. What are we learning from continued exploration? Surely not everything, but as it turns out, quite a lot. For example, although only 16 of 39 international martian missions have been successful, we do know that Mars is home to the Solar System's tallest mountain. And from NASA's current mission using the Curiosity rover as the organization's eyes, ears and hands, scientists have been able to definitively say the Gale Crater landing site could have possibly supported microbial life in the past. Researchers and science enthusiasts alike have wondered for years when conditions on the red planet will be inhabitable for human life, and they may be wondering for a while. Although current data points to the possibility of life, long-term sustainability is still a futuristic concept.
What other discoveries lie in wait on Mars? Only time and exploration will tell. Until then, check out this playlist to follow the Curiosity rover's adventures and learn more about the amazing properties of Mars.
About this Video
from The Mars Underground
From the highest volcano to the deepest canyon, from impact craters to ancient river beds and lava flows, this showcase of images from ESA's Mars Express takes you on an unforgettable journey across the Red Planet. Mars Express was launched on 2 June 2003 and arrived at Mars six-and-a-half months later. It has since orbited the planet nearly 12 500 times, providing scientists with unprecedented images and data collected by its suite of scientific instruments. The data have been used to create an almost global digital topographic model of the surface, providing a unique visualisation and enabling researchers to acquire new and surprising information about the evolution of the Red Planet. The images in this movie were taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera and the video was released by the DLR German Aerospace Center as part of the ten years of Mars Express celebrations in June 2013. The music has been created by Stephan Elgner of DLR's Mars Express planetary cartography team. DLR developed and is operating the stereo camera.
