The European Space Agency
Mars Express: ASPERA

The ASPERA Energetic Neutral Atoms Analyser studies how the solar wind interacts with the Martian atmosphere to throw light on the mechanisms by which water vapor and other gases could have escaped from Mars in the past. The instrument uses a technique known as energetic neutral atom imaging to visualize the charged and neutral gas environments around Mars. The ASPERA Principal Investigator is Mats Holmström, Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF), matsh@irf.se.

The primary source for ASPERA data is the ESA Planetary Science Archive.

Through a cooperative agreement between ESA and NASA, the PDS Geosciences Node and the PDS PPI Node are hosting copies of the ASPERA data archive.

More information about ASPERA is on the ASPERA web site.
