MAVEN is a new NASA spacecraft embarking on a mission to study Mars' upper atmosphere, seeking to learn how the atmosphere and environment changed over time.

Mars is a barren planet of extreme temperatures and the thinnest of atmospheres, and an environment too hostile to sustain even microbial life. But evidence from past missions to the Red Planet show evidence of an ancient, watery world. Now scientists seek to understand what could have caused such a dramatic change.
