Cleveland, OH – When human explorers embark on the journey to Mars, they need to know the natural conditions of the red planet before they arrive.

One of those future rover missions may host the Martian Aqueous Habitat Reconnaissance Suite (MAHRS), a set of five instruments that can take surface measurements in the search for habitable environments.
