Maven is already orbiting Mars.

The Maven spacecraft is already in Mars orbit. The last Martian adventure of the space agency of the United States (NASA, in English) arrived with success.

The probe crossed space for ten months at full speed until late on Sunday it put on the brakes, that is, it activated its turbines.

With 33 minutes of propulsion, the speed was damped to allow it to be captured by the gravity of Mars.

Maven arrived to study the atmosphere of the red planet and thus try to understand the process that led to its running out of air.
