ExoMars Mars Atmospheric Global Imaging Experiment (MAGIE)
The Mars Atmospheric Global Imaging Experiment (MAGIE) was designed to acquire daily global images of Mars for at least 1 martian year (687 Earth days) at 2 visible wavelengths and 2 ultraviolet wavelengths. MAGIE images were to be used to document the weather on Mars by observing the comings and goings of dust storms, dust devils, polar frost, and clouds of water vapor, water ice, and carbon dioxide crystals. MAGIE's ultraviolet observations were to have mapped the distribution of water vapor and ozone in the atmosphere.
