We’re so excited about AddThis user, NASA, launching on another endeavor into space! Next Monday, NASA will launch a probe to Mars. It’s called the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN probe, or MAVEN, and it’s designed to study the upper atmosphere of Mars and how it interacts with solar wind. Though it might not make sense at first, this information is very important for knowing more about the history of Mars and it’s past potential for habitability.
Everyone’s favorite space agency and long-time AddThis user NASA will be launching a probe to the moon tonight (assuming everything goes as planned) to test out some great new technologies, and learn about our closest celestial neighbor.
