NASA is planning a new Mission to Mars, which is scheduled to be launched this November with a landing taking place April of next year. The rover is named Curiosity, and it will search for organic molecules / see if Mars is or was capable of supporting life.

In addition a seemingly cool book on Mars has just been released entitled "A Passion For Mars: Intrepid Explorers of the Red Planet" by Andrew Chaikin.
