"The US space agency's (Nasa) Maven has arrived successfully in orbit above the planet.
Hurtling through space for the past 10 months, Maven slammed on the brakes by firing its thrusters.
Maven has been sent to study the Red Planet's high atmosphere, to try to understand the processes that have robbed the world of most of its air."

That's just technobabble for 'Max is almost home'.
Or else there's a typo in 'Mars'.

Off to bed!
