BOULDER, Colo. — Monday is your chance to see what University of Colorado researchers have learned from the Maven mission to Mars.

The Maven spacecraft started orbiting the planet in September and it began sending back photos when it first arrived.

CU researchers are studying Maven’s findings to try to figure out why Mars no longer contains water on its surface.

The event, which is free, begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. and the discussion starts at 6:15 p.m. at eTown Hall (1535 Spruce St.), but you have to preregister online by Monday morning you want to attend.
