MAVEN has been collecting science data for two Mars years

Today (Aug. 21, 2018) marks two Mars years since the start of the MAVEN science mission. MAVEN Launched on November 18, 2013 and achieved Mars Orbit insertion on September 22, 2014.

It is a powerful testament to the entire MAVEN team that the spacecraft and instruments are working so well, that operations are going smoothly, and that the science continues to reveal unprecedented details about Mars’ evolution!

It has taken a lot of hard work from many individuals, partners, and institutions to get the mission to this point. Congratulations to the entire MAVEN team for reaching this mission milestone.

And here’s to the next two Mars years!
