Brand new Pacific island is a whole lot like Mars, and scientists are excited
Yahoo News - 3 months
It's not often that a whole new chunk of land just comes jutting out of the ocean, but that's just what happened with a new island in the South Pacific. A large undersea volcano blew its top in late 2014, shooting rock and ash skyward, and once everything calmed down an entirely new island had been formed. Now, NASA is looking at the newly formed landmass for possible hints at how the landscape of Mars behaved billions of years ago. The new island, which is being referred to by the unofficial name Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai, didn't seem to have a bright future when it first emerged in the wake of the volcano's fury, but researchers now believe it actually might stick around for quite a while. New data suggests it might even last as long as 30 years.

NASA's New Mars Orbiter to Study 'Critical Piece' of Martian Puzzle (Video)
Yahoo News - over 4 years
NASA's next Mars probe is set to piece together longstanding mysteries about the atmosphere of the Red Planet. Earlier robotic probes and rovers sent to Mars were designed to investigate the surface of the planet, but the space agency's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution spacecraft (MAVEN) is built for a different target: the planet's atmosphere. "The Martian atmosphere is a critical piece of the puzzle of how Mars works," Jim Garvin, chief scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., said. You can watch the launch live on SPACE.com, via NASA TV, beginning at 11 a.m. EST (1400 GMT).
