“May this survey be a call to action, a validation that the American public is still committed to doing great and noble things, ‘not because they are easy, but because they are hard.’ Americans are united in confidence and spirit that men and women will walk on Mars within their lifetime. Let us commit ourselves to this noble cause of the human spirit.”
Artemis Westenberg, President, Director, and Co-Founder of Explore Mars

Workshop Report WASHINGTON, DC — January 14, 2014 — A global working group of more than sixty leaders from more than thirty government, industry and academic organizations issued a joint statement today announcing consensus that a human mission to Mars is both feasible and affordable assuming policy consistency among international space agencies and levels of funding consistent with pre-sequestration levels and modest increases annually in line with inflation…
The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission (MAVEN) will examine specific processes on Mars that led to the loss of much of its atmosphere. Data and analysis could tell planetary scientists the history of climate change on the Red Planet and provide further information on the history of planetary habitability. “The MAVEN mission is a significant step toward unraveling the planetary puzzle about Mars’ past and present environments,” said John Grunsfeld, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington.
Beverly, Massachusetts: Explore Mars, Inc., is joining the mission to inspire students to participate in Orion’s first space flight in 2014 through NASA’s Exploration Design Challenge. The Explore Mars organization will be collaborating with NASA, Lockheed Martin, and the National Institute of Aerospace to encourage students in the U.S. and abroad to think and act like scientists to overcome one of the major hurdles for deep space long-duration exploration – protecting astronauts and hardware from the dangers of space radiation…
The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) “Curiosity” rover is roaming the 154km-wide crater and will climb Mount Sharp. She is expected to drive long distances and explore the layers of the mountain in the middle for at least 98 weeks.
Although the mission is planned for 1 Martian year, Curiosity’s power supply can last at least 14 years…
1 year into her mission Curiosity is en route to the first flanks of Mount Sharp
The Mars Education Challenge (MEC) has successfully developed curriculum in accordance with U.S. standards effective methods for using Mars to illustrate and explore STEM topics like biology, geology, chemistry, engineering, and astronomy.
The teaching materials have been collected in a free downloadable database…
