Jet down to Cocoa Beach, Fla., Nov. 16-18 for a once-in-a-lifetime, exclusive opportunity to watch a CU-Boulder-led mission launch into space en route to Mars. The $670 million mission ó NASA's Mars Atmosphere And Volatile Evolution [MAVEN] ó is the first devoted to understanding the upper atmosphere of Mars. The goal is to determine how the loss of atmospheric gas on Mars has changed the planetís climate.
Pending weather and other extenuating conditions, the launch is scheduled to take place Monday, Nov. 18. The official launch period runs from Nov. 18 to Dec. 7 (and beyond under certain circumstances). To celebrate we have organized two days of prelaunch cocktail parties, tours of the Kennedy Space Center, an exclusive mission briefing by CU-Boulder professor Bruce Jakosky, MAVENís principal investigator and an invite-only opportunity to watch the spacecraft take off for Mars.
