An anonymous reader writes “Since the atmospheric blanket of Mars is fast disappearing, NASA is planning a mission to Mars in 2013 to study the Red Planet further. The $400-million plus project named the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission (MAVEN) will investigate how the red planet lost most of its atmosphere. This will be critical in understanding whether there has been life on Mars or not.”
