Isn’t she a beauty?!
NASA’s GREECE mission, which will study how the curls and swirls of an aurora forms, launched early last week.
“We can’t wait to dig into the data,” said one investigator on the project.
We can’t either!
This photo is amazing! I can’t believe I didn’t see it make the rounds last November.
Here we see the spacecraft MAVEN launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla., at the tail end of 2013. NASA researchers hope to learn a bit more about Mars’ upper atmosphere, which disappeared millions of years ago. So far, everything is on track with MAVEN, which will begin orbiting the red planet in mid-September.
How far has the spacecraft traveled since this picture was taken? More than 137 million miles. Go, Maven!
