Plans to build 106 homes on A3094 Netherhampton Road criticised A COUNCILLOR has hit back at plans for an additional 106 houses along Netherhampton Road, raising concerns around employment and traffic. Plans to build 640 homes along the A3094 in Harnham had already been given the green light last year, and now a separate application for a further 106 homes has been submitted to Wiltshire Council by Vistry Homes Limited.
When Mariner 9 approached Mars in 1971, to become the first probe to orbit the planet, Mars was at its closest to the Sun and in the grip of a dust storm more severe than any we’ve seen since. On approach the only features visible were four dark spots.
A quake-measuring device on Mars is providing the first detailed look at the red planet's interior A quake-measuring device on Mars is providing the first detailed look at the red planet's interior, revealing a surprisingly thin crust and a hot molten core beneath the frigid surface. In a series of articles published this week, scientists reported that the Martian crust is within the thickness range of Earth’s.
NASA's Mars helicopter Ingenuity is gearing up for its TENTH flight on the Red Planet this weekend where it will investigate 'Raised Ridges' in the Jezero Crater
NASA's Ingenuity helicopter is preparing for its tenth flight on the Red Planet It will fly over 'Raised Ridges' taking images of the sand dunes in the region This is a surface that the NASA Perseverance rover isn't able to drive over The flight profile hasn't been revealed but it will launch as soon as Saturday
The world’s first commercial deep-space communications antenna conducted its first operational work on 11 July, receiving images from the European Space Agency’s Mars Express mission. The pictures – which showed a thin Martian crescent and the cratered, ochre disc of the planet – were downlinked via the antenna designated “GHY-6” located at Goonhilly Earth Station in Cornwall, in the south-west UK.
The solar system’s god of war has a bigger heart than expected: Using humankind’s first seismometer on another planet, researchers have analysed the interior structure of Mars for the first time, including its oversize liquid core. The findings, published on July 22 across three studies in the journal Science, mark the latest scientific triumph for NASA’s InSight lander, which arrived at the flat equatorial plain known as Elysium Planitia in November 2018.
WASHINGTON, July 22 (Reuters) - Seismic waves from quakes detected by NASA's robotic InSight lander have helped scientists decipher the anatomy of Mars, including the first estimates of the size of its large liquid metal core, thickness of its crust, and nature of its mantle.
Nasa has begun looking for life on Mars, as its Perseverance rover started scanning the Martian surface for ancient life. The $2.7 billion (£2bn) rover will use its 7ft mechanical arm to look at rocks from the surface of Mars with X-ray and ultraviolet cameras, allowing the Nasa team to zoom into microscopic segments of rock that could show signs of past microbial activity.
NASA scientists think evidence of ancient life on Mars may have been "erased". The US space agency's Curiosity rover has discovered that parts of the planet's rock record are missing and this could be due to super-salty water, also known as brine. Ashwin Vasavada, a Curiosity project scientist, said: "We’ve learned something very important: There are some parts of the Martian rock record that aren’t so good at preserving evidence of the planet’s past and possible life."
NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover has begun its search for signs of ancient life on the Red Planet. Flexing its 7-foot (2-meter) mechanical arm, the rover is testing the sensitive detectors it carries, capturing their first science readings. Along with analyzing rocks using X-rays and ultraviolet light, the six-wheeled scientist will zoom in for closeups of tiny segments of rock surfaces that might show evidence of past microbial activity.
BEIJING, July 16 (Xinhua) -- The following is a summary of published science and technology news of China. MARS ROVER China's Mars rover Zhurong has traveled 450 meters on the surface of the red planet, according to the Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center of the China National Space Administration on Thursday.
If you think you have a weird work schedule, odds are Luke Walker has you beat. Walker is currently a flight system systems engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. For the last six years Walker, a Georgia Tech B.S. and MBA grad, has worked on the Mars Perseverance project in several different roles.
MORE than 60 Explorer Scouts from Woking’s five units recently enjoyed a fun-packed day at Birchmere campsite in Wisley. The Scouts, aged from 14 to 18, represented Challenger units from Knaphill, Martian (Horsell), Wey Ahead (Pyrford), Maverick (Kingfield) and Young Leader (Woking).
Ruf-tuned off-road reworking of current Porsche 911 is inspired by 1980s Dakar Rally era Open gallery Close An ambitious, off-road-capable supercar created by the eponymous company of Marc Philipp Gemballa (son of the late Gemballa tuning firm owner Uwe) has been unveiled, with production set to begin later this year.
China's space agency releases five new images taken by its Zhurong rover showing the vast Martian landscape and the vehicle's tire tracks after seven weeks exploring the Red Planet
The China National Space Administration released 5 new images of Mars taken by its Zhurong rover on Friday The first image, taken on June 26, shows the Martian landscape with what appears to be the surface component detector and the climate detector from the rover The third and fourth images show rocks on the surface and what appears to be tire tracks left by the rover
A new paper enriches scientists' understanding of where the rock record preserved or destroyed evidence of Mars' past and possible signs of ancient life. Today, Mars is a planet of extremes—it's bitterly cold, has high radiation, and is bone-dry. But billions of years ago, Mars was home to lake systems that could have sustained microbial life.
