NASA Mars Science: MAVEN Webinars Measuring Methane on Mars

Methane is an important gas in Earth’s atmosphere, released by volcanoes and excreted by many living organisms, including microbes. Several missions at Mars have found evidence for methane in its atmosphere, including a recent short-lived plume of methane measured by the Curiosity rover.  Join us on September 18 as Dr. Paul Mahaffy, Principal Investigator of MAVEN’s Neutral Gas and Ion Mass Spectrometer (NGIMS) and of Curiosity’s Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument, describes the recent and ongoing studies of methane in the atmosphere of Mars.

Time: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 7 pm Eastern, 6 pm Central, 5 pm Mountain, 4 pm Pacific, 3 pm Alaska, and 1 pm Hawaii
