During our 11 minute plus discussion, John, Dr. David Brain, and I talked about the MAVEN mission scheduled to launch on November 18, 2013. During this discussion, we talked about the MAVEN mission, the instrument packages and what the instruments are designed to do, plus we talked about the potential for gaining information that might someday assist in terraforming Mars. Other topics included how the instruments are made and stored on board the spacecraft to survive launch stresses plus many months of travel through deep space. Dr. Brain talked about how the instruments would measure the Martian atmosphere, gasses, changes, etc.
