NASA may have discovered what happened to Mars' atmosphere. The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission has found that solar wind stripped the planet's atmosphere clean.
Scientists are edging ever closer to discovering what transformed Mars from a water-rich planet to the arid desert that it is today.
Mars may be sporting a "hairstyle" that's sure to make other planets jealous. NASA's MAVEN spacecraft has discovered that the Red Planet sports a "Mohawk" of escaping atmospheric particles at its poles.

These days, Mars doesn't have much in the way of an atmosphere. And yet it did in its ancient past. Now, NASA's newest Mars orbiter, MAVEN, has discovered key features about the loss of the planet's atmosphere to space over time.
When Comet Siding Spring brushed past Mars, scientists captured data using NASA's MAVEN mission. Now, researchers have found that the comet was actually the cause of an intense meteor shower and added a new layer of ions, or charged particles to the ionosphere.
NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft has given scientists their very first look at the atmosphere of Mars.
