Researchers watching dust storm on Mars Casper Star-Tribune

University of Colorado geologist and other Mars researchers are watching a dust storm that starting churning on that planet, and if it grows it could complicate the landing of a NASA rover in less than three weeks. ”Usually they appear and die out in a few days to a week, or they expand into global storms. We don’t know what’s going to happen with this one,” said Bruce Jakosky, the CU geologist who served on the site selection committee for NASA’s $820 million Mars Exploration Rover mission.
