But that’s not the end of it, of course. Future missions will also explore the Martian atmosphere - stay tuned for more information on MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN) and Europe’s Trace Gas Orbiter, both slated for launch in the same year! So for all of you Mars fans out there: 2016 is going to be a very big year for you!
Be ahead of the curve and educate yourself about InSight at its nicely done webpage at http://insight.jpl.nasa.gov/home.cfm. As always, Our Space will make sure you are always ahead of the curve with what’s up in space!
