Scope Mars exploration has been accelerated; At least one robotic mission has been continuously operating in the vicinity of Mars since 1997, and the number of spacecraft observing Mars has steadily increased. Now three rovers are on the surface of Mars, and eight spacecraft are in Mars orbit. Several new missions will be launched shortly, including ExoMars 2022 in 2022 and the MMX mission to explore Phobos, Deimos, and Mars scheduled for a 2024 launch. This session will discuss recent results from a broad spectrum of Mars studies encompassing the interior, surface, atmosphere, plasma environment, and the Mars system, including its two satellites. Abstracts on instrumentation, theoretical studies, and future mission plans are also encouraged for this session, as both the presenters and the audience would greatly benefit from ensuing discussions and feedback.
