Naviarhaiku 016

Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) is a space probe designed to study the Martian atmosphere while orbiting Mars. Mission goals include determining how the Martian atmosphere and water, presumed to have once been substantial, were lost over time. MAVEN was successfully launched on November 18, 2013.

To mark this special occasion, NASA invited members of the public to submit their names and a personal message online for a DVD to be carried aboard a spacecraft that will study the Martian upper atmosphere. The public also was encouraged to submit a message in the form of a three-line poem, or haiku.

Welcome to the sixteenth experiment of Naviar Haiku. Participants are to complete the task by Wednesday 30th April and post the track on our Soundcloud group
