ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (EMTGO) Mars Atmospheric Global Imaging Experiment (MAGIE) Science Team

The Mars Atmospheric Global Imaging Experiment (MAGIE) is a competitively-selected science investigation for the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (EMTGO), a joint NASA and ESA mission. Launch is scheduled for early January 2016, with arrival at Mars in mid-October 2016. Science operations will begin in the May-August 2017 timeframe after a 6-9 month period of aerobraking.
