 On November 18 at 1:28pm ET, MAVEN will launch on a 10-month flight to Mars to better understand the planet’s atmosphere, climate, liquid water, and planetary habitability. In other words: could live on Mars exist in the future — and was there any life that existed on the planet in the past.

The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) mission is part of NASA’s Mars Scout program.
