  • Mars Will Be Close To Earth For The Next Few Weeks

    Business Insider reports that Mars will look brighter in the night sky over the next six weeks than it has appeared in 15 years. That's because the red planet will be at its closest point to Earth since 2003 throughout June and July. This as our planet passes between Mars and the sun. According to The Weather Channel, on July 31 Mars will be at its brightest. The planet will be 35.8 million miles away from Earth. Mars will be easily visible to the naked eye throughout July.

  • How Close are We to a Real-life Mars Mission, À La 'The Martian'?

    It's no secret that NASA wants to get humans to Mars. At the moment, the space agency's guiding star is the dream of landing people on the red planet sometime in the not-too-distant future. But Hollywood already has them beat. In The Martian, Matt Damon plays astronaut Mark Watney, a NASA botanist who gets left behind on Mars after a dust storm forces the rest of his crew to leave the planet. In the film, Watney and his five crewmates were brought to Mars by a huge rotating spaceship called the Hermes, which was built in low-Earth orbit using a space station backed by the real-life private company SpaceX. So, just how different will NASA's real mission to Mars be? "By the 2030s, we want a human presence in that area [Mars], perhaps a flyby like we did to the moon... or perhaps going to Phobos and Deimos, which are two moons of Mars," Jim Green, NASA director of the planetary science division, tells Mashable. Green added that the current plan is to get "boots on the ground" by the 2040s or 2050s, according to the strategy President Barack Obama has laid out for the agency.

  • We're Warming Up Earth Just Fine. Now, Scientists Want To Do The Same On Mars

    Scientists are looking at ways to make Mars more habitable for humans. According to Gizmodo, one idea is using an insulating material called silica aerogel. It's hypothesized that an aerogel blanket could more easily melt the water on the Martian ice caps. Such a material might therefore be useful to raise the ground temperature in the region around the Martian poles. Tiles of the material could be assembled into a greenhouse-like structure.

  • Dangerous Smog In Bangkok Forces Hundreds Of Schools To Close

    While hundreds of schools in the American Midwest are shut down due to freezing temperatures, hundreds in another part of the world are facing closures for a different reason entirely: air pollution. Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok has been dealing with shitty air quality all month, but now the incessant air pollution has forced the city to close schools for the rest of the week. “We will assess the situation on Saturday and Sunday to see whether there would be the need to close all schools further next week,” said government spokesman Puttipong Punnakan, according to Reuters.

  • NASA's InSight Probe Has Touched Down On Mars

    NASA's InSight probe has successfully landed on Mars. The InSight lander will explore what's occurring deep beneath the surface. The probe was launched six months ago in California and has delivered three new instruments to the surface of Mars. One instrument will measure how heat flows out of the planet. One will study the planet's core using its poles, and one will search for “Marsquakes.”
