Exobiology on Mars, otherwise known as ExoMars, is a joint Mars exploration project being run by the European Space Agency (ESA) and Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos). This project has been launched to study the past and present signs of life on Mars and the climate and geology of the red planet, as well as […]Read more "ExoMars Rover – Mars Exploration Mission"
Are we alone in the universe? It’s probably the greatest question posed by space exploration. It fascinates scientists and the general public. It’s important and deeply compelling. We want to know, and we have ways of finding out. It doesn’t cost much to operate a SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program. Some space missions cost […]Read more "Why SETI Counts"
