    CAPE CANAVERAL, FLA. - The huge parachute used by NASA's Perseverance rover to land on Mars contained a secret message, thanks to a puzzle lover on the spacecraft team.   Systems engineer Ian Clark used a binary code to spell out "Dare Mighty Things" in the orange and white strips of the 70-foot (21-meter) parachute. He also included the GPS coordinates for the mission's headquarters at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Clark, a crossword hobbyist, came up with the idea two years ago. Engineers wanted an unusual pattern in the nylon fabric to know how the parachute was oriented during descent. Turning it into a secret message was "super fun," he said Tuesday. Only about six people knew about the encoded message before Thursday's landing, according to Clark. They waited until the parachute images came back before putting out a teaser during a televised news conference Monday....

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Ever wondered what it’s like to land on Mars? Thanks to the NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover, people across the world can see for themselves. On Monday, NASA and the team at Pasadena’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory released video of the little rover’s landing from last week.

            by Thomas Catenacci  The National Aeronautics and Space Administration released the first photos taken by its Perseverance rover on Mars after it became just the fifth rover to ever successfully complete the landing. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) photos released Saturday showed Mars’s vast landscape and rocky terrain. On Thursday, Perseverance successfully completed its landing on the Red Planet after a nearly seven-month flight from Earth. “This landing is one of those pivotal moments for NASA, the United States, and space exploration globally – when we know we are on the cusp of discovery and sharpening our pencils, so to speak, to rewrite the textbooks,” acting NASA Administrator Steve Jurczyk said in a statement Thursday.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — CBS3 had a special guest Thursday to talk specifically about NASA’s mission to Mars. NASA’s Perseverance Rover is preparing for landing on Thursday. Touch down on the red planet is scheduled to take place a little before 4 p.m. RELATED: PennDOT Crews Hard At Work As Region Expecting Measurable Snow On Thursday Mitch Schulte, a Perseverance program scientist, joined Eyewitness News This Morning from College Park, Maryland to talke more about this very exciting mission to Mars. Perseverance is the first rover to land on Mars since Curiosity back in 2021. Schulte says this rover is special because it’s been outfitted with all new instruments to really look in fine detail at the surface of Mars and the materials there. NASA will also be looking at the rock record specifically for signs that ancient life that might have been left behind. They will also be collecting samples...
    (CNN)While robotic rovers may explore the surface of Mars on behalf of humans who can't safely land there yet, they aren't alone. A fleet of orbiters circling the planet act as dual-purpose workhorses, relaying back data and images from the surface missions to Earth while studying various aspects of the planet.Their mapping capabilities have allowed NASA mission teams to select intriguing landing sites, and their cameras and instruments can keep watch on surface missions and even warn of global dust storms. When NASA's Perseverance rover lands on Mars on February 18, it will be the most sophisticated robotic explorer yet to venture across the Martian surface. The rover will search for signs of ancient life at the site of Jezero Crater, where a river delta and lake existed 3.9 billion years ago. The UAEs Hope Probe has successfully entered orbit around MarsThe rover will regularly talk to orbiters that swing...
    NASA showed one of its incredible rover ideas. The rover is called a dual axle, which is actually two rovers in one with a base station. The rovers can separate and anchor themselves, allowing them to explore areas that can be safely reached from each other. NASA’s diligent rover is currently on its way to Mars. The high-tech engine is more capable than any other robot NASA has sent to the Red Planet to date, but it is actually very similar to other rovers in Curiosity, Opportunity and NASA history. It is a mobile platform for science, and it was not built for the worst terrain to offer to Mars. But in the future, Rovers may actually be able to do more interesting research, and New Rover concept called Duaxel A view of the future of planetary exploration. This is very bold. Duaxel, as its...
    Colonizing Mars is the “logical next step” of human space exploration – after astronaut Chris Handfield once said – after stepping on the Moon, an achievement accomplished more than half a century ago. In 2020, a series of missions are active to explore the red planet, hoping to pave the way for a future human settlement. The Artemis project, which plans to resend manned ships to the Moon, is nothing more than a bridge to bring the first humans to Mars. And not only NASA and ESA are preparing for it, but countries like the United Arab Emirates or Japan are also preparing for it. But the objective of these missions is, beyond colonizing Mars someday, what we have been doing for decades: studying our neighboring planet to see if it could have been habitable in the past, or if it can still be. The discovery of water...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami/CNN) — NASA is expected to launch its new Mars rover, Perseverance, on Thursday, July 30. The car-size Perseverance, NASA’s fifth Mars rover, is the heaviest and largest the space agency has ever sent to the red planet. Perseverance is set to lift off at 7:50 a.m. on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Station in Florida. It is expected to land on Mars in February 2021.  Its main job is to seek signs of ancient life and collect rock and soil samples for possible return to Earth. Perseverance will act as a robotic astrobiologist, investigating the site of an ancient lake and river delta and search for signs that microbial life may have once inhabited the area. It carries on a legacy of robotic explorers on Mars that began with NASA’s Sojourner rover, which landed in 1997. Sojourner...

    These videos are truly out of this world. Extraordinary images captured by NASA’s robotic rovers are giving Earthlings their first look at Mars in state-of-the-art, ultra high-definition video. A 10-minute clip posted on YouTube features panoramic views of the Red Planet’s surface, including sweeping deserts, massive dunes, craggy outcroppings and cracked ground strewn with jagged rocks. “This is the first time Martian footage has been rendered in stunning, 4K resolution,” a narrator intones as haunting music plays in the background. The video’s “journey across the surface of another world” was posted by Britain’s ElderFox Documentaries, which said it was created using digital photos shot by three NASA rovers — Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity — and beamed back to Earth. They were then “stitched together” to create the illusion of a camera panning across desolate and barren landscape — and provide what the narrator calls the “most lifelike experience of...
