OK, so you're not one of the 'lucky' guys who might be picked for that Dutch-empowered one way trip to Mars next decade, but you can still get there on a DVD!

The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission (MAVEN) that will launch this year will explore Mars' upper atmosphere, ionosphere and interactions with the Sun and solar wind. Scientists will use MAVEN data to determine the role that loss of volatile compounds from its atmosphere to space has played over time, giving insight into the history of Mars atmosphere and climate, liquid water, and planetary habitability.

And you can send your name on board too!
