Plumes seen reaching high above the surface of Mars are causing a stir among scientists studying the atmosphere on the Red Planet.

On two separate occasions in March and April 2012, amateur astronomers reported definite plume-like features developing on the planet. . . . Read Complete Report

Robotic Ants Building Homes On Mars?

Swarm robotics is a new approach to the coordination of multirobot systems which consist of large numbers of mostly simple physical robots. It is supposed that a desired collective behavior emerges from the interactions between the robots and interactions of robots with the environment. This approach emerged on the field of artificial swarm intelligence, as well as the biological studies of insects, ants and other fields in nature, where swarm behaviour occurs. . . . Wikipedia

Oct. 27, 2008 — Recent discoveries of water and Earth-like soil on Mars have set imaginations running wild that human beings may one day colonize the Red Planet. However, the first inhabitants might not be human in form at all, but rather swarms of tiny robots.

“Small robots that are able to work together could explore the planet. We now know there is water and dust so all they would need is some sort of glue to start building structures, such as homes for human scientists,” says Marc Szymanski, a robotics researcher at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany. . . .

EXPERTS

“Sep. 16, 2013 — The ESA wants its operations on other planets to have greater mobility and manoeuvrability. SINTEF researchers are looking into whether snake robots could be the answer”…

…”The researchers envisage using the rover to navigate over large distances, after which the snake robot can detach itself and crawl into tight, inaccessible areas. A cable will connect the robot to the vehicle. The cable will supply power and tractive power, i.e. it can be winched back to the rover. Communication between the pair will be facilitated via signals transmitted down the cable.” . . . Read Complete Report

NASA Curiosity Rover Team Selects Second Drilling Target on Mars

The team operating NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover has selected a second target rock for drilling and sampling. The rover will set course to the drilling location in coming days

This second drilling target, called “Cumberland,” lies about nine feet (2.75 meters) west of the rock where Curiosity’s drill first touched Martian stone in February. Curiosity took the first rock sample ever collected on Mars from that rock, called “John Klein.” . . . Read Complete Report

How 3,500 of us want a one-way trip to Mars and be filmed on a ‘space-age reality TV programme’

More than 3,500 Britons have applied for a one-way ticket to Mars under a bold plan to fly four people there every year from 2023.

The colonists have to agree to stay on the red planet for the rest of their lives – and be filmed for a reality TV programme.

Mars One, the Dutch company behind the project, says energy will come from solar panels and eats will be grown on the planet. The venture has attracted 78,000 applications from more than 120 countries. . . . Read Complete Report
