Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) Keychain
Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) is a planned space exploration mission to send a space probe to orbit Mars and study its atmosphere. It will help determine what caused the Martian atmosphere —and water— to be lost to space, making the climate increasingly inhospitable for life. November 18, 2013 marks the opening of a three-week launch window for the MAVEN spacecraft, which will take place from Cape Canaveral on an Atlas V-401. The goal of MAVEN is to determine the history of the loss of atmospheric gases to space through time, providing answers about Mars climate evolution. By measuring the current rate of escape to space and gathering enough information about the relevant processes, scientists will be able to infer how the planet's atmosphere evolved in time. We do special orders and customization and its always free. Want a NASA logo on the back or inside of a a product??
