We could be one step closer to finding out if there is in fact life on Mars after a spacecraft successfully entered the orbit around the planet.
After almost a year of travelling the universe to get there, Nasa's Maven probe is beginning its one year mission to study the Red Planet's atmosphere.
ITV News reporter Sally Biddulph has the details:
Nasa's Mars spacecraft is to explore the "mystery" of climate change on Red Planet.
Scientists confirmed that the Maven science vessel will now be able to beam back data after the mission successfully place it into orbit.
Mars has a relatively thick atmosphere compared to the moon. The more interesting comparison is that we have a fleet of earth science and weather satellites around the earth for us to understand the earth's atmosphere.
The Mars atmosphere, being something like the earth's - Maven is something more akin to our earth observing satellites.
Somehow Mars changed billions of years ago from a thick atmosphere like earth to the very thin one today. That's the big mystery the team with Maven is trying to solve.
Speaking at a press conference, Astronaut John Grunsfeld from the Nasa Science Mission Directorate said the mission aimed to solve the riddle of the planet's history.
