MAVEN Mission Completes Major Milestone

The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) mission reached a major milestone last week when it successfully completed its Mission Critical Design Review (CDR).
MAVEN, scheduled for launch in late 2013, will be the first mission devoted to understanding the Martian upper atmosphere. 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. It will accomplish this by measuring the current rate of escape to space and gathering enough information about the relevant processes to allow extrapolation backward in time.

Most of the money for a $485 million NASA mission to study Mars' atmosphere in 2014 is going to Denver-area aerospace companies and the University of Colorado.
NASA recently confirmed it will use a rocket from Centennial-based United Launch Alliance for the Nov. 18, 2013, launch of the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution probe (MAVEN) on a nine-month flight to the red planet.

New NASA Mission to Mars
The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder was selected by NASA to lead a new upcoming space mission to Mars. The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Environment spacecraft is scheduled for launch in 2013 and will spend three years exploring the planets climate and atmosphere. This mission will be the second in NASA's Mars Scout program, after the 2007 Phoenix launch.

NASA chose a University of Colorado proposal for a $485 million Mars mission on Monday after a nine-month delay caused by a conflict of interest in the selection process. The delay cost the space agency time, money and science.
The price of the probe increased by $10 million, its launch was postponed by two years, and the science-gathering mission will be cut in half to one year
