Here you will find the weekly results obtained from the PFS Instrument on Mars Express.
Hot Topic
The PFS has made observations of the non-Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (LTE) emission by CO and CO2 molecules in the upper atmosphere of Mars.
The Future
A busy time lies ahead for the PFS team as increasing data accuracy opens up fresh lines of Martian enquiry.
PFS en route to Venus
A second PFS instrument is now on its way to Venus, on board ESA’s Venus Express spacecraft launched on 9 November from Baikonur in Kazakstan.

The saying goes that a picture is worth a thousand words. However when it comes to exploring Mars, the supply of infrared spectra from the Planetary Fourier Spectrometer (PFS) instrument is more valuable than the most spectacular single image of Mars.
