ExoMars Mars Atmospheric Global Imaging Experiment (MAGIE)

Computer Rendering of the Mars Atmospheric Global Imaging Experiment (MAGIE)

The Mars Atmospheric Global Imaging Experiment (MAGIE) is 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 will 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 will map the distribution of water vapor and ozone in the atmosphere.
