NASA has found something on Mars, we find out tomorrow

NASA astronauts will show spectacular footage on your channel, as well as in popular social networks.

NASA's Curiosity rover landed inside Mars's 96-mile-wide Gale Crater on August 6, 2012, and has spent its time since then investigating the Red Planet's geology, climate and the question of whether or not it has ever supported microbial life. According to a statement from the space Agency, at a press conference, experts will talk about new achievements in terms of colonization of Mars.

The live panel discussion will feature appearances from several big-name scientists, including Paul Mahaffy, director of the Solar System Exploration Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Jen Eigenbrode, research scientist at Goddard, Chris Webster, from NASA's Pasadena-based Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and Ashwin Vasavada, Mars Science Laboratory project scientist.

The NASA conference will stream live on Express.co.uk alongside Facebook Live, Twitch TV, Ustream, YouTube and Periscope.

NASA didn't release many details on the discovery but all the secrecy surround this new finding made some people believe that this is something huge.

The problem with the rover's drill was caused by a faulty motor.


NASA's Curiosity Rover has apparently made an exciting discovery on Mars, but the space agency is remaining tight-lipped on the potential bombshell until Thursday, leaving plenty of time for speculation.

Mars rover is trending after one year: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (Nasa)'s Curiosity rover is up to some folks.

NASA has kept a snappy Twitter feed for the car-sized, six-wheeled rover throughout its time on Mars, and it has nearly 4 million followers. But the resourceful Curiosity team came up with a new way to move the samples - a technique dubbed "feed extended sample transfer", which is more compatible with the FED than the previously used method, CHIMRA (Collection and Handling for In-Situ Martian Rock Analysis). Delivery to its chemistry laboratory will follow in the week ahead.

Late last month, the rover used it's newly function drill to collect rock samples for the first time in almost two years.

"The science team was confident that the engineers would deliver - so confident that we drove back to a site that we missed drilling before. It means we can resume studying Mount Sharp, which Curiosity is climbing, with our full range of scientific tools".
