NASA’s Curiosity rover has detected methane on the planet, which excites researchers to no end, but some believe that the methane samples the rover is picking up are actually coming from the rover itself. The question of methane on Mars has been a mystery for decades, and it seems researchers may not really be any closer to solving it.

Building on the success of the ongoing exploratory mission on the red planet, the space agency will essentially replicate the existing rover model’s architecture in order to drive down costs and risk. The new rover is expected to launch in 2020 and Curiosity may well be there to welcome it.

Finally, they devote even more of their resources to back politicians who obstruct climate and clean energy policies that would reduce carbon emissions at large. Their strategies have appeared to pay off — now … Read the full story on TreeHugger
