Sept. 2013) -
Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer
This robotic mission will orbit
gathering information on the
lunar atmosphere will help scientists better
mt V p understand other planets.
MAVEN' (late 2013)
Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission
Mars may not have always been dry and
dusty. MAVEN will shed light on the
planet' s past climate by exploring its upper
atmosphere, ionosphere and interactions
with the sun and solar wind,

Mission (POM)
Using four identical spacecraft, variably
spaced in Earth orbit, this mission will
investigate how the Sun' s and Earth' s
magnetic fields connect and disconnect.
