Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s LeVar Burton has done a NASA YouTube public service announcement explaining the MAVEN mission.

The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission will “explore Mars’ climate history and gather clues about the question scientists have been asking for decades.”

MAVEN will look at specific processes at Mars that led to the loss of much of its atmosphere…and MAVEN data could tell scientists a lot about the history of climate change on the Red Planet.”

NASA is thrilled to have LeVar Burton explain this mission to the greater public,” said Bert Ulrich, NASA‘s multimedia liaison for film and TV collaborations. “Thanks to Burton’s engaging talents and passion for space exploration, audiences of all ages will be able to share in the excitement of NASA‘s next mission to Mars.”

The MAVEN mission launched yesterday from Cape Canaveral and will arrive on Mars next September.
