Marshall FX MAJOR and MINOR audio phones introduced with Apple certification

This week the folks at Marshall Headphones have introduced their newest pair, the Major FX, complete with Apple certified microphone and remote with units to be sold in Apple Stores across the USA and Canada immediately if not soon. For those of you that don't know, having a product so nicely constructed the Apple carries it in their physical store and in their online store means you've got a big hit on your hands right out of the gate, and with the Marshall name as well as Apple support, the MAJOR FX set are over-ear headphones, while the MINOR FX are earbuds with essentially the same sound quality, build quality, and fashionable look.

Marshall Major headphones & Minor earphones get official

After teasing us for the past few weeks, Marshall has finally outed its Marshall Major and Marshall Minor headphones and earphones. The affordably-priced pair cash in, unsurprisingly, on the near-legendary reputation of Marshall amps, but do seem to have a few abilities of their own; the Marshall Minor in-ear buds, for instance, have a special EarClick "lock" to increase stability, as well as an in-line microphone for hands-free use with your phone, while the Marshall Major earphones can fold down for easier transportation.

NASA begins prototyping first airplane to fly over Mars

NASA begins prototyping first airplane to fly over Mars

NASA has revealed a new prototype design for an aircraft that will eventually be the first to fly on Mars in the 2020's. Dubbed the Preliminary Research Aerodynamic Design to Land on Mars, or "Prandtl-m" for short, features a flying-wing design and is said to be ready for testing later this year via launching from a balloon at an altitude of 100,000 feet to simulate Mars' atmosphere.

NASA will launch CubeSats as part of next year’s Mars mission

NASA will launch CubeSats as part of next year’s Mars mission

NASA has announced that when it launches a stationary lander next year as part of its Mars effort, it will include a pair of CubeSats. This will mark the first time CubeSats have been flown into deep space, says the space agency, and a success will demonstrate that the technology is able to rapidly transmit data about the status of the primary spacecraft destined for Mars. The CubeSats were both built by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and will fly independent of the InSight lander, which will land on Mars next September.

Life on Mars may be preserved in meteorite-made glass

Life on Mars may be preserved in meteorite-made glass

A paper released this week by K. Cannon and J. Mustard shows how ancient life on Mars could be preserved by meteorite glass. Impact glass, or glass-rich impactites, have the ability to both encapsulate and preserve biosignatures on Earth. Because of this, these scientists show how Mars may have bio-rich preserves that rovers on Mars may not have even begun to explore. While we've been looking for signs of life - or ancient life - on Mars for many years, we might just have not been looking in the right place!

NASA finds glass on Mars, could hold signs of life

NASA finds glass on Mars, could hold signs of life

Every mark on a planet's surface details its history. Mars is long suspected of being home to signs of life, so its history is of particular interest to researchers. NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has found glass deposits sitting at the nadir of some impact craters on Mars. Previous scientific inquiries into impact glass on earth have been led by Peter Schultz from Brown University. While working on an expedition in Argentina he discovered ancient plant matter and organic material embedded in glass that was formed by an impact from millions of years ago. He proposed that the similar impacts could preserve signs of life on other planets. If they could isolate glass deposits on Mars, there is a chance they could detect and analyze the biosignatures.

ESA Mars Explorer images shows effects of wind on Mars

ESA Mars Explorer images shows effects of wind on Mars

We all see the effect of the wind here on Earth every day. Winds can be mild breezes that shake the leaves up to gales that can topple trees and destroy homes. On Mars, the winds can be much the same as they are here on Earth and the ESA has released a new image that shows a bit of what the wind on Mars does to the surface of the red planet.

Did stowaway gas foul Curiosity’s Mars methane findings?

Did stowaway gas foul Curiosity’s Mars methane findings?

NASA's Curiosity rover has sparked an unexpected argument over methane on Mars, as operators attempt to figure out whether the gas is local or imported. The existence of methane on the red planet could be a strong indicator either of biological life or even just lingering geological activity, hence scientists' collective interest in whether it's present or not. However, while Curiosity seems to have spotted the gas, there are some who think it itself is responsible for it.

SpaceX teases Mars-bound future with retro travel posters

SpaceX teases Mars-bound future with retro travel posters

Back in January, NASA published some inspirational travel posters for far away planets based on real travel posters from the past. Now SpaceX has followed suit, only it wants your attention to be solely on Mars — the subject of its new three retro posters. The space company dropped the posters on its Flickr account over the weekend, and though we doubt this is what life on Mars would actually look like, it’s a fun way to dream of a future in space while enjoy the nostalgia of classic science fiction-like artwork.
