    NASA Overview The Mars Surveyor Program (MSP) was managed under the cheaper, better, faster paradigm at the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA). This corporate culture created an environment which challenged NASA engineers to develop innovative, cost saving processes when designing and developing projects. This paradigm did have drawbacks though; putting too much emphasis on decreasing cost, and failing to integrate risk management in their projects. Ultimately, this mindset led to unacceptable risk levels, but the project selection and approval process attempted to mitigate these risks. The project selection and approval process starts with formulation, which consists of the project initiation. The project can be initiated…

    The idea that Mars could be hospitable to human life is still under question, however the question of water on Mars is indubitably unambiguous. And with the new breaking scientific news, the long lasting question of water on Mars has finally been answered. “New findings from NASA’S Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars” ( Liquid Water para 1). According to this new theory, empirical data from NASA shows…

    Hydrated Water On Mars

    For more than fifteen years, the search for any sign of water on Mars has finally been found conclusive. Findings from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provided the definite evidence that water flows periodically throughout Mars. Using a spectrometer on the MRO, researchers saw hydrated minerals that are seen as streaks. These streaks fade in cooler seasons and seem to flow down as well as darken during the warmer seasons. These flows are called recurring slop linea and the finding of…

    A recent study on Mars’s geology causes a paradigm shift to researchers’ perspective of the red planet. Felsic rocks that thought to not exist on Mars are now identified. Overall, these findings alter the understanding of the geologic complexity and magmatic activity of Mars. Prior knowledge of Mars’s geology was rather simple; consisting of one type of rock formation in contrast to Earth’s diverse and complex geology. Felsic rocks such as granite, are common in subduction zones on Earth (Wray…

    On September 28th,2015 NASA researchers announced that they had discovered liquid water on the surface of Mars. They actually told news agencies that they had something big to discuss in relation to Mars. It took several space craft and several centers of research five years to come to this finding. Why is there such a push to find liquid water on mars? As far as science knows, life requires water. Rockets require hydrogen and oxygen. Humans require oxygen to breath and to function. If we want…

    search for sign of water on Mars has finally been found conclusive. Findings from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provided the definite evidence that water flows periodically throughout Mars. Using an imaging spectrometer on the MRO, researchers saw hydrated minerals that are seen as streaks on slopes. These streaks fade in cooler seasons and seem to flow down, as well as darken during the warmer seasons. These flows are called recurring slop linea (RSL). Additionally, the finding of…

    Thanks to its carved topography, researchers have always suspected that Mars was once home to several rivers, lakes, and perhaps even oceans. There has even been some speculation about the existence of frozen water deep beneath the ground. However, finding evidence of liquid water in the present day, has been a little elusive. That is why NASA's September 28th announcement that confirmed the detection of liquid brine on the Red Planet caused so much excitement. The first indication of the…

    existence of potentially life supporting water that flows across the antient surface of Mars, even today! According to John Grunsfeld, the associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA, "the existence of liquid water, even if it is super salty briny water, gives the possibility that if there's life on Mars, that we have a way to describe how it might survive." Using images taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, NASA researchers confirmed that the water streaks found…
