MAVEN entered Mars orbit four years ago today

The MAVEN spacecraft entered orbit at Mars on September 21, 2014, and has been making unprecedented discoveries about the evolution of Mars’ climate and potential for habitability ever since.

Congratulations to the entire MAVEN team—with partners across the globe—on such a wonderfully successful mission.

Four more years! Four more years!
