present Active missions for mars:

A mission to study the deep interior of Mars.
    InSight (Discovery Mission)

A joint project of the European Space Agency and Russia's Roscosmos space agency, ExoMars consists of an orbiter designed to search for evidence atmospheric gases that could be signatures of active biological or geological processes and an experimental lander.
    ExoMars 2016 (ESA/Roscosmos)

MAVEN (Mars Atmospheric and Volatile EvolutioN) is obtaining critical measurements of the Martian atmosphere to help understand dramatic climate change on the red planet over its history.
    MAVEN

NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter carries the most powerful camera ever flown on a planetary exploration mission for homing in on details of Martian terrain with extraordinary clarity.
    Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter

Part of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission, Curiosity is the largest and most capable rover ever sent to Mars.
    Mars Science Laboratory - Curiosity

The European Space Agency's first spacecraft to visit another planet in the solar system.
    Mars Express (ESA)

NASA's longest-lasting spacecraft at Mars.
    2001 Mars Odyssey

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

I am not aware of any news for the day for Mars so here is some sites for Space news instead. Of which we had a perfect launch from a Falcon 9 Heavy and a Lunar landing that was a crash. Then again the first photo's of a black hole seems to be a ringer for silence as well....

https://www.space.com/news

https://www.nbcnews.com/science/space

https://phys.org/space-news/

https://www.universetoday.com/

Many sites for space news but not much for direct news on what we are doing on Mars. It must be the time delay between Earth and Mars...

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

No leaks or announcements for mars and these are news articles during the month of Feb. & Mar. of 2019

not just about mars but the first article is about protecting man.

College Students Hatch Nuclear-Powered Magnetic Plan to Protect Marsonauts from Cosmic Rays

The students, from Drake University in Iowa, presented their project in the poster session Saturday (April 13) at the April meeting of the American Physical Society. Their MISSFIT (Magneto-Ionization Spacecraft Shield for Interplanetary Travel) design uses a powerful magnetic shield that, like Earth's magnetosphere, protects the planet from high-energy particles. The defense system also incorporates "passive" shielding to mimic the ionosphere — Earth's second layer of defense.
