We have resolved the issues with Comments on the site and have re-enabled them. We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope you will continue to comment on our daily news links.
A note to comment spammers: submitting comment spam to MarsNews.com is a waste of time, since we have the "nofollow" tag and -- assuming you got past all our defenses -- your spam will not be indexed by Google or seen by any of our users.
We have completed a significant upgrade to the backend of MarsNews.com, bringing the software to Movable Type 3.11. Since initially moving to the award-winning weblog package earlier this year, we have been very pleased by its ease of use and powerful abilities to rebuild the website with one click. We highly recommend it!
Comments are now working correctly, and you now have the option of getting a free TypeKey login so you don't have to re-enter your name & email every time.
Thanks for visiting MarsNews.com and please let us know your comments and suggestions!
MarsNews.com has just reached a significant milestone: our 5,000th article has been posted into the NewsWire Database, which contains 32 categories of Mars-related topics and contains articles as far back as 1977!
The NewsWire Database, which was founded in 1999 along with the website itself, places MarsNews.com onto a level above other space news sites. No other online media source offers a free, searchable catalog of stories about Mars with this volume of information.
Thanks for visiting MarsNews.com and we hope you will continue to enjoy all the news and background information that the site has to offer.

You can help us to maintain the database in two different ways. Use this form to suggest we add an article to the site, no matter how old; as long as it's Mars-related we will add it! If you spot a broken link somewhere, please use this form to report it.
MarsNews.com's NewsWire Database is now the most comprehensive public resource for news and information about Mars missions and topics. Utilizing the NewsWire Database as well as our Mission Overviews and Focus Pages, you can quickly learn about any Mars-related topic.
Other services such as Lexis-Nexus offer similar features, for a fee. MarsNews.com is and will remain a free public resource, supported by our readers. If we can make improvements in any way, please contact us.

Around a thousand articles are present in the new NewsWire Database. In our efforts to eliminate all the broken links from the old system, we have not yet moved over the approximately 3,000 articles remaining. We will be working to do so over the next couple of weeks. But, as you may imagine, fixing all those links has proven to be a big job!
We also have not yet finished the "Image of the Day" feature, which we will use in partnership with What On Mars. It should be ready in a few days, and we will begin providing daily a selected image of interest.
Please explore the new site and contact us if you have any questions or comments. Also let us know if you spot any broken links or something that doesn't appear to be working correctly.
