Planetary Radio Live Celebrates the Launch of MAVEN for Mars

Pasadena, California

MAVEN

The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission to Mars will help answer one of our deepest questions about that planet: Where did its once plentiful atmosphere go?  The answer may be the next step toward determining if life once thrived there. 

The launch window opens Monday, November 18, at 10:28am Pacific Time.  The Planetary Society's Planetary Radio invites you to be part of this historic beginning.  Host Mat Kaplan will welcome colleagues Bruce Betts and Emily Lakdawalla at Southern California Public Radio's Crawford Family Forum, part of the Mohn Broadcast Center. Joining them by video from the Cape Canaveral launch site will be Bill Nye the Science Guy, CEO of the Planetary Society, and special guests like famed planetary scientist Jim Bell. 

Seats are free, but you must RSVP on SCPR's event page.  Can't join us in person?  Watch the live webcast that will be available from the same SCPR webpage shortly before we begin.

Remember, rocket science is hard!  Everything is looking good for a successful launch when the window opens, but delays lasting minutes, hours or days are possible.  We will update this page as more information becomes available.
