Barring any unforeseen technical problems or weather issues, NASA's MAVEN spacecraft should be on its way to Mars at this very moment seven days from now. Still deciding on whether or not I should take a day off from work to watch this launch on NASA TV! Hmm.

NASA's MAVEN spacecraft undergoes testing at the Lockheed Martin Space Systems facility in Littleton, Colorado earlier this year.
