NASA’s MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution) spacecraft will be launched to a 10-month journey to Mars today, 18th November
The mission will explore the Red Planet’s upper atmosphere, ionosphere and interactions with the sun and solar wind. Scientists will use MAVEN data to determine the role that loss of volatile from the Mars atmosphere to space has played through time, giving insight into the history of Mars’ atmosphere and climate, liquid water, and planetary habitability.
