You are invited to join our next Mars MAVEN webinar, on November 30 (1pm HT, 3pm ADT, 4pm PDT, 5pm MDT, 6pm CDT, 7pm EDT):  The MAVEN Mission and Mars' Auroras.

The NASA Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission (MAVEN) has been studying Mars’ climate evolution since September 2014, particularly the loss of its atmosphere to space due to interactions with the sun and the solar wind.  Among its discoveries, MAVEN has observed auroras in unexpected locations in the Martian atmosphere.

Join Dr. Nick Schneider from the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) and lead scientist for MAVEN’s Imaging Ultraviolet Spectrograph, to hear about MAVEN’s discoveries and the different types of auroras on Mars. Please invite colleagues to join as well!
