Caption: MAVEN spacecraft. Artwork of the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft in orbit around Mars. The spacecraft launched on 18th November 2013 and is planned to reach Mars orbit on 22nd September 2014. From its orbit it will study the evolution of the Martian atmosphere. It is thought Mars used to have a thick atmosphere that made it warm enough for there to be liquid water on the surface. Data collected by MAVEN will shed light on how and why that atmosphere has been lost.
