A short while after India’s Mars orbiter spacecraft took off, NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) spacecraft successfully launched.

MAVEN will be joining India’s MOM in orbit around Mars in September 2014, after a 10-month trip.

Here is a picture of MAVEN aboard an Atlas V rocket, the night before it was launched.
