NASA recently outlined its plan to get astronauts to Mars roughly two decades from now. Here are some of the biggest planned milestones it hopes will make that happen.
The landscape on Mars continues to impress with a weird and wonderful collection of sand dunes and surface fractures.
What would it be like to see Mars firsthand if you were scrambling across it to survive? See for yourself, in 3D, even.
An analysis of the water on Mars may have to wait until NASA's human Mars mission in the 2030s.
Technically Incorrect: Tesla's CEO wants to create constant nuclear pulse explosions so that there'd be two little suns to heat the planet and make it ready for our arrival.
NASA confirmed that there is flowing water on Mars. Meanwhile on Earth, Google introduced new phones and media streamers. Get caught up with the top stories in tech right here.
Oddsmakers apply statistical science to pick sports winners, but CNET's Eric Mack says one handicapper seems to have ignored the stats when picking the team of scientists to win the race to Mars.
The new Matt Damon movie "The Martian" explores whether a human can survive on Mars. NASA is already working toward its goal to put astronauts on the Red Planet by the 2030s. Ashley Esqueda spoke with NASA's head of planetary sciences, Dr. Jim Green, about the challenges NASA is facing and what it will take to set foot on Mars.
Ashley congratulates the winners of NASA's 3D Printed Habitat Challenge, explains how controlling a robotic arm with a paintbrush may help disabled patients someday and drools over Tesla's new Model X (but cries a little at its price).
The winner of NASA's 3D Printed Habitat Challenge is "Mars Ice House," a structure made primarily from ice already present on the red planet. It's an interesting glimpse into a future where manned missions on Mars may require long-term housing for astronauts.
