On 8 January 2007, a team led by the University of California at Santa Barbara was selected by NASA for delivery of the Mars Organic Molecule Analyzer (MOMA). Intended for the European Space Agency ExoMars mission in 2013, MOMA will analyze organic molecular signatures and the environment in which they exist. SESI’s contribution will be delivery of a specialized AP/MALDI mass spectrometry ion source and miniature tandem Mass Spectrometer. (NASA press release)
