A Canadian Mission to Mars

Northern Light is a Canadian mission to send one or more landers to the surface of Mars. The Northern Light mission will study the Martian environment. An atmospheric instrument will make detailed measurements of the Martian atmosphere, and the Beaver rover will explore the surface and subsurface.

Northern Light will be equipped with a sophisticated science payload, making the best use of Canadian scientific expertise. York University is the official Research Host of the Northern Light mission.
