But also, "around the time of opposition, a planet is at its closest distance to Earth for a given year", the USA space agency explained. In brief, getting water and an atmosphere.

Transforming the inhospitable Martian environment into a place astronauts could explore without life support is not possible without technology well beyond today's capabilities, researchers said.

A 12-mile, underground lake may have been found on Mars.

Enter Scott McLennan, a SUNY Distinguished Professor in Stony Brook University's Department of Geosciences.

"Unfortunately we're weather-dependent, so we're hoping the sky is clear that night, even though we usually want the rain", Reed said.

Israeli navy intercepts activist boat trying to break Gaza blockade
Palestinian demonstrators gather during a protest at the Israel-Gaza border, in the southern Gaza Strip July 27, 2018. Ten Malaysians are on board the vessel, having joined the mission in Copenhagen in May.

Scott McLennan: Rock on, space man.

However, Mars does not retain enough carbon dioxide that could practically be put back into the atmosphere to warm Mars, according to a new NASA-sponsored study.

July 31 marks a significant day in space science.

Team Zopherus of Rogers is the first-place victor in NASA's 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge, Phase 3: Level 1 competition.

The AI SpaceFactory team, including McLennan, earned $20,957.24, finishing just a few cents behind Arkansas-based Team Zopherus, which earned $20,957.95.

Rand Paul backs Trump's pick for the Supreme Court
You'd think those concerns would dictate waiting for confirmation hearings where Kavanaugh might be questioned on the subject. The other two GOP Senators, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski seem reasonably well disposed towards Kavanaugh.

The telescope viewing is free, while the "Mars Madness" presentation and shows are $5 each, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Live-in condition: MARSHA, MARSHA, MARSHA.

The planet will remain bright for several weeks, and you can also view the planets Saturn, Jupiter and Venus in a "long arc across the sky from east to west" shortly after sunset.

"We are thrilled to see the success of this diverse group of teams that have approached this competition in their own unique styles", said Dr. Monsi Roman, program manager for NASA's Centennial Challenges.

More than 750,000 students and professionals worldwide have participated in a series of engineering and design challenges over the six-month competition run by U.S. computer giant HP.

Grieved families of MH370 victims hope for answers from official
Next of kin looked distraught after receiving the document, many sobbing and saying that the document offered them "no closure". The report found no signs that the plane was evading radar detection or that it had been taken over by remote control.

All five finalists share $100,000 (£76,000) in prize money and now proceed to the third phase in the competition, when they must build a scale-model of their concepts, says Futurism.
