Mars 96 surface station, artwork Featured Mars Print

Mars 96 surface station, artwork

Mars 96 surface station. Artwork showing one of the surface stations of the Russian Mars 96 mission landing on Mars after being released from orbit. This mission's launch on 16 November 1996 failed and the spacecraft broke up as it re-entered the Earth's atmosphere. It carried two surface stations and two penetrators. The surface stations were each contained in an aeroball, seen here below the parachute. The aeroball would cushion the impact and then deflate to allow the station to unfold. Instruments, including the US Mars Oxidant Experiment, would have measured meteorological, physical and chemical conditions

Artwork of the early Earth-Moon system

Artwork of the young Earth-Moon system. The Earth had recently formed when it was struck by a protoplanet ?" called Theia ?" roughly three times the size of Mars. Debris from the impact went into orbit, while the cores of the two planets merged. Within weeks of the event, the debris formed a Saturn-like ring around the Earth. Later collisions in this ring led to the formation of the Moon, probably within just a few thousand years. Initially the Earth and Moon were much closer together than they are now, and spinning more quickly

Muonionalusta meteorite, micrograph Featured Mars Print

Muonionalusta meteorite, micrograph

Dark field micrograph of the surfcace of the iron fine octahedrite type meteorite Muonionalusta, found in Sweden. The Widmanstatten pattern of lines on the newly-cut surface are produced by the edges of crystals in the meteorite. The pattern was formed about 1 billion years ago when the iron mass solidified in one of several minor planets between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. These planets have since been disrupted to form the asteroid belt. The fragments resulting from collisions between asteroids are deflected into orbits that cross the path of the Earth. Analysis of meteorites can provide information on the composition of the early solar system. Object size of this close-up: approx. 2, 5 mm
