NASA Mars Science: MAVEN Webinars

The Magnetic Tail of Mars

Mars has a unique magnetic tail compared to other planets in our solar system. The MAVEN mission has demonstrated how the Martian magnetotail becomes twisted by its interaction with the solar wind. Join us as Dr. Gina DiBraccio from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center describes what makes the Martian magnetic environment so different from other planets, and how processes in its magnetotail may contribute to atmospheric escape to space.

Time: Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 5 pm Eastern, 4 pm Central, 3 pm Mountain, 2 pm Pacific, 1 pm Alaska, and 11 am Hawaii
