NASA's MAVEN: mission viewing, questions, comments
This thread is for comments and questions regarding NASA's mission to investigate how Mars lost much of its atmosphere and the updates published under the topic: MAVEN to study Mars' atmosphere.

MAVEN is a Mars orbiter that will greatly enhance our understanding of Mars' climate history by providing a comprehensive picture of the Red Planet's upper atmosphere, ionosphere, solar energy drivers and atmospheric losses.

NASA video release
LeVar Burton Shares MAVEN's Story

NASA is returning to Mars!

This NASA Public Service Announcement regarding the MAVEN mission is presented by LeVar Burton in which he shares the story about NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission — or MAVEN — and how it will explore Mars' climate history and gather clues about the question scientists have been asking for decades.

MAVEN will look at specific processes at Mars that led to the loss of much of its atmosphere... and MAVEN data could tell scientists a lot about the history of climate change on the Red Planet.

When MAVEN arrives at Mars in September 2014, it will join ongoing NASA missions— Odyssey, Opportunity, MRO, and Curiosity — that continue to improve our understanding of Mars and the evolution of our Solar System.

NASA is committed to a program of Mars exploration — with the goal of sending humans in the 2030s. The data from these missions, and those to come later this decade, will inform future human exploration as well as provide textbook-changing science.
