Thus using simple well known technology, it is possible to install the entire population of Earth inside a few cubic miles. This applies to almost any small planet out there and is surely the safest strategy anyway. It is also inevitable that any
India plans to launch a space probe that will orbit Mars, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh confirmed on Wednesday after press reports that the mission was scheduled to begin late next year.
Singh announced the unmanned Mars mission during a speech Wednesday to mark the 65th anniversary of India’s independence from British rule. Scientists say the spacecraft is expected to take nearly 11 months to get close to Mars after which it will

This is the latest view from NASA's Mars rover Curioisty, which landed pointing toward its target, Mt. Sharp, a huge peak at the heart of Gale Crater. What a view!
As the Mars rover Curiosity plummeted toward its landing on Mars last night, NASA's orbiters, the storied Odyssey orbiter and Reconnaissance Orbiter, were sailing overhead and watching its progress.
After executing a flawless landing sequence, NASA’s new Mars rover, Curiosity, has reached the surface of its new home.
One of the most complicated missions ever attempted by NASA, the landing of the one-ton rover Curiosity inside a crater on Mars after a 500 million kilometer journey, has apparently gone without a hitch.
Human-driven climate change is to blame for a series of increasingly hot summers and the situation is already worse than was expected just two decades ago, a top NASA scientist said on Saturday.

The moment is almost here. In just a couple days, NASA’s new Mars rover, Curiosity, will begin its descent to the Martian surface and hopefully start beaming back amazing images and data.
The dust has settled on the final round of NASA's Commercial Crew integrated Capability program project, and three winners have been given funding for the next round of American-made space taxis:
SpaceX, Boeing, and Sierra Nevada chosen to take Americans into orbit
Mars is cooperating
How humans have parachuted, retro-rocketed, and otherwise smashed really expensive equipment into faraway planetary bodies
Scientists are trying to get the first direct look at the black hole at the center of our galaxy. How close will they come to seeing the unseeable?
