Mars Atmosphere and Climate: Past, Present, and Future

by

Prof. Bruce M. Jakosky

 

NASA MAVEN’s Principal Investigator

Professor of Geological Sciences

Associate Director for Science

Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics

University of Colorado

 

Geological and geochemical evidence points toward Mars having had a warmer and wetter climate early in its history, in which liquid water could flow and was abundant. This compares to today’s very cold and dry that cannot support stable water. What caused this change in climate? Where did the water go? Where did the CO2 from an early greenhouse atmosphere go? And is it possible to mobilize CO2 remaining on the planet back into the atmosphere and “terraform” Mars to make a more clement climate? I’ll discuss the evolution of the Martian atmosphere and climate, integrating results from numerous recent spacecraft missions.

 

Dr. Jakosky is a Professor in the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics and the Dept. of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and is Associate Director for Science at LASP. He received his Ph.D. in Planetary Science and Geophysics from Caltech in 1982. His research interests are in the geology of planetary surfaces, the evolution of the Martian atmosphere and climate, the potential for life on Mars and elsewhere, and the philosophical and societal issues in astrobiology. He is the Principal Investigator of the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission to Mars that has been orbiting Mars since fall of 2014. He has published more than 300 papers in the refereed scientific literature, and has authored or co-authored a number of books, including “The Search for Life on Other Planets” and “Science, Society, and the Search for Life in the Universe”.

Dr. Jeff Puschell is an internationally recognized scientist-engineer with 30+ years of proven success as Principal Investigator, Chief Scientist, Chief Engineer, Technical Director or Lead System Engineer on 15+ major projects sponsored by governments and private industry in space-based remote sensing, laser-based systems, observational astrophysics and underwater laser systems. He is author or co-author of 130+ technical publications, co-editor and co-author of Space Mission Engineering: The New SMAD, the leading textbook and reference source for space systems engineering, co-author for Standard Handbook for Aerospace Engineers, 2nd Edition and co-author for AccessScience, among many other publications. He is a Raytheon Principal Engineering Fellow, AIAA Fellow and SPIE Fellow. He and his wife Dana live in Hermosa Beach and Solvang, California.

Dr. Puschell been a space guy since first grade. His earliest memory of wonder is from a dark summer night. After arriving home with his family, his father picked him up from the back seat of their 1959 Edsel to carry him into the house, because he had been asleep. As his father picked him up, he woke up and looked up at the summer Milky Way, immediately awestruck. That moment propelled him to who he is today. His parents reinforced that wonder on his next birthday with a 2.5 inch Gilbert Newtonian reflector telescope, which he used until he made an 8 inch Newtonian reflector from an Edmund kit in junior high school. Along the way, he made and launched Estes rockets, entered and won awards in local, regional, state and national science fairs. He has been blessed with a life of endless wonder that he is always happy to share with others.

Ms. MiMi Aung is a project manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, where she is leading the project to develop a Mars helicopter technology demonstration. Since joining JPL in 1990 she has performed various roles in multiple disciplines on space flight and Deep Space Network (DSN) projects, technology development, and line management. She is passionate about space exploration, especially to advance the autonomous capability of spacecraft exploring deep space.

She started in the DSN development of its first operational digital receiver system, the Block V Receiver. She developed, analyzed, and tested receiver algorithms, and continued work through implementation to operationalization at all three DSN complexes across the globe. She then led a multidisciplinary team to evaluate the applicability of the monopulse technique for precise pointing of the 34-meter-diameter antennas, leading to operational use in the DSN. She next worked on the Earth Orbiting System Microwave Limb Sounder instrument as a cognizant engineer for the 240 GHz radiometer.

In 2000 she became project element manager for the autonomous formation flying sensor on the StarLight two-spacecraft interferometer mission, where she applied her knowledge of transmit/receive systems to the determination of interspacecraft range and bearing measurement for precise formation flying of multiple spacecraft. She went on to become the project element manager for formation flying on the Terrestrial Planet Finder project.

In 2003 she took on the additional duty of technical group supervisor, a line management position, for the Guidance, Navigation & Control (GN&C) Sensors Group, where she was involved in next-generation sensor technologies required for future spaceflight missions. Her technical interest expanded to next-generation GN&C capabilities for increasingly autonomous space exploration. In 2010 she became manager of the Guidance and Control Section, where she emphasized the development of advanced GN&C technologies and their infusion in future missions for precision entry, descent, and landing on planetary surfaces; proximity operations about small bodies; multispacecraft precision formation flying; and precision pointing of spacecraft. In 2013 she became deputy manager of the Autonomous Systems Division responsible for spacecraft GN&C, power, avionics, flight software, and robotics. Since 2015 she has been the lead for Mars Helicopter technology demonstration development.

Ms. Aung earned her BS (1988) and MS (1990) in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her MS thesis was in the area of signal processing and communications.
