Until very recently, planetary scientists had thought that Mars is a cold, dry planet. Then in the summer of 2000, NASA released images from the Mars Global Surveyor showing evidence of very recent seepage of ground water from crater and valley slopes in the planet's southern hemisphere. It seems that substantial reservoirs of the water that once may have run so copiously on the surface may still ... Full description.

This interactive activity lets you superimpose familiar objects onto images of various features on Mars so you can see just how large they are. The features include crater landing sites, the largest volcano in the solar system, and a headwater area, etc. The objects include a school bus, stadium, Texas, Hawaii, and the contiguous USA. The activity is fun and educational. Full description.

NASA's Jet Propulsion and Mars Science Laboratories provide a detailed look "under the hood" of the Mars Curiosity Rover, explaining the role of the analytical chemistry instruments found onboard Curiosity. Curiosity's primary mission goal is to determine the habitability of the Gale Crater, which scientists believe was once filled with water. Curiosity is basically an entire chemistry lab packed ...

This activity guide illustrates how teachers can use planetary comparisons between Earth and Mars to teach basic geologic activities - i.e. volcanoes, impact cratering, layering, river processes, and crosscutting relationships - to help students understand a planet's history. The lessons included in this activity use current science results, as it contains actual orbital data from the Mars Global ... Full description.

This is a lesson about using craters to indicate the age of a planetary surface. Learners will simulate the process of cratering by using falling water drops to make craters in fine silica sand. Then, they will compare the cratered surfaces they produce with pictures of the surface of Mars. As an extension, learners will examine a more complex Mars image and apply what they have learned about Mars ... Full description.
