Mars Exploration Program

NASA's Mars Exploration Program includes current missions Odyssey, MRO, Mars Express, MSL, InSight, and Mars 2020. The Mars Exploration Program Data Management Plan, written by the Geosciences Node, sets forth guidelines for Mars Exploration Program missions to use in planning their archives. The director of the Geosciences Node, Raymond Arvidson, is the MEP Interdisciplinary Scientist for Data and Archives.

This web page coordinates links to PDS archive web sites for MEP missions, and links to archive-related documents.
