MARS MAVEN PATCH 4.5" X 1.75"

The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) is a space probe designed to study the Martian atmosphere while orbiting Mars. Mission goals include determining how the Martian atmosphere and water, presumed to have once been substantial, were lost over time. MAVEN was successfully launched aboard an Atlas V launch vehicle at the beginning of the first launch window on November 18, 2013. Following the first engine burn of the Centaur second stage, the vehicle coasted in low-Earth orbit for 27 minutes before a second Centaur burn of five minutes to insert into a heliocentric Mars transit orbit. On September 22, 2014, the plan is for MAVEN to be inserted into an orbit around Mars: an areocentric elliptic orbit 6,200 km (3,900 mi) by 150 km (93 mi) above Mars' surface.The principal investigator for the spacecraft is Bruce Jakosky of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado Boulder.
