Researchers have created the first map of wind circulation in the upper atmosphere of a planet besides Earth, using data from NASA’s #MAVEN spacecraft that were collected during the last two years. The new map of Mars winds helps scientists to better understand the workings of the Martian climate, giving them a more accurate picture of its ancient past and its ongoing evolution.
