Go Maven!

When I saw the successful launch of MAVEN, or the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvoluioN mission, today, I was filled with a deep sense of pride for the agency’s accomplishment and for the small businesses that played a part in making this possible. I will be highlighting these companies within the coming weeks, delving into their contributions into helping the agency meet its mission. MAVEN will take ten months to get to Mars and will take critical measurements of the Martian upper atmosphere to help scientists understand climate change of the Red Planet’s history, unlike the orbiters, rovers and landers looking for signs of life in Mars history.
