NASA video imagines young Mars with lakes and clouds

NASA video imagines young Mars with lakes and clouds

NASA's Goddard Conceptual Image Lab has released a video illustrating the way Mars might have looked 4 billion years ago, back when both Mars and Earth were young. It's one of the most complex scientifically informed animations the studio has ever produced, NASA says, and it is breathtaking. The music is epic-- like something you'd hear in an ancient battle movie scene--and the watery, cloudy scenery will really get your imagination going. There's even a surprise ending. Check out the video after the jump.

Alien: Isolation game places Ripley’s daughter alone in space

Alien: Isolation game places Ripley’s daughter alone in space

There's a video game being developed right this minute by Sega with a main character that, if you've never seen the Director's Cut of "Aliens", you might never have known existed. This character is the daughter of Ellen Ripley, a character that died (or so this one tiny scene suggests) while Ripley was floating home from her original Alien mission - not all that far from Prometheus. Here in a new game with a working title of Alien: Isolation, we're to take to a sparse universe not unlike that original film, doing so behind the eyes of the younger warrior.

Curiosity Rover finds no evidence of methane on Mars

One of the main goals of putting the rover Curiosity on the surface of Mars was to help determine if the planet could've harbored life in the past, or perhaps still has life on its surface or under. Prior to putting Curiosity on the surface of the red planet, measurements taken from Earth and by orbiting satellites and sensors suggested that methane might be present on the surface of Mars.

Phosphate may have been more abundant on ancient Mars than it is on Earth

Phosphate may have been more abundant on ancient Mars than it is on Earth

One of the key chemical ingredients scientists believe to be required for life is phosphate. Phosphate is plentiful here on Earth, but scientists now believe that phosphate could've been more abundant on ancient Mars that it is on earth today. Phosphate is believed to be a required component for life because it is the backbone of DNA and an essential part of molecules that cells use to generate energy and their required membranes.

Star Trek deflector shield could protect Mars mission from cancer risk

Star Trek deflector shield could protect Mars mission from cancer risk

A Star Trek style deflector shield that could protect deep-space astronauts, such as the much-discussed manned mission to Mars, from cancer-causing levels of radiation is in testing, researchers have revealed. The system, described as a "mini-magnetosphere" in reference to the Earth's magnetic field which protects us from solar radiation, is the handiwork of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and relies upon the fact that by creating a magnetic field around a spacecraft, the dangerous rays can be deflected and the astronauts preserved in a bubble of safety for their journey.
