Here’s a map of Mars with as much water as Earth

Sci-fi visions of Mars have changed over time, in step with humanity's own obsessions.Once the source of alien invaders, the Red Planet is now deemed ripe for terraforming.Here's an extreme example: Mars with exactly as much surface water as Earth.

First serialised in 1936 as "Planet Plane" and set in the then distant future of 1981, the fourth novel by sci-fi legend...

Elon Musk seems furious that SpaceX has to split Space Force contracts worth billions with his nemesis, ULA

SpaceX recently won a 40% share of a prized agreement with the Space Force to launch classified US payloads into orbit. But the rocket company, founded by Elon Musk in 2002, remained curiously silent for days after the announcement. Musk broke the silence on Thursday by accusing rival United Launch Alliance, which won a majority of the rocket contracts, of being "a complete waste of taxpayer money." Tory Bruno, ULA's CEO, responded to Musk by congratulating SpaceX on its award. Musk has a long...

What Mars Would Look Like If Its Surface Was Covered With Water

schwit1 writes: A new map shows what the red planet would look like if 71 percent of its surface area was covered with water -- around the same proportion as Earth. The results are spectacular: it shows two distinct landmasses forming, each of which would seem to form continents. While the left side shows a dramatic, mountainous terrain that includes Olympus Mons, the right side seems to offer more flatlands that include planes like Terra Sabaea. The map was created by Aaditya Raj Bhattarai, a...

Planet Ceres Is An 'Ocean World' With Sea Water Beneath Surface, Mission Finds

The dwarf planet Ceres -- long believed to be a barren space rock -- is an ocean world with reservoirs of sea water beneath its surface, the results of a major exploration mission showed on Monday. The Guardian reports: Ceres is the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and has its own gravity, enabling the Nasa Dawn spacecraft to capture high-resolution images of its surface. Now a team of scientists from the United States and Europe have analyzed images relayed from the ...

Excerpt from Patreon – As we begin the week, we have a background Yod pattern in play. Jupiter’s ongoing sextile to Neptune forms the base, bringing this aspect into the foreground. With these two, we are wanting to develop something concrete (Jupiter in Capricorn) that is meaningful, spiritual, a vision, helpful, good for the collective (Neptune in Pisces). It’s a very charitable aspect which fosters great empathy and kindness. But first the Sun and then Mercury form quincunxes to these planets...

16 plutonium-powered space missions shaping our understanding of space — including the NASA rover that will search for alien life on Mars

NASA last week launched its Mars 2020 Perseverance rover to hunt for signs of ancient alien life. Once on Mars, Perseverance will be powered by a radioisotope thermoelectric generator. The nuclear "battery" is fueled by a rare human-made material called plutonium-238. Perseverance is just the latest in a long line of groundbreaking, plutonium-powered spacecraft that have changed our understanding of the solar system.
