The rover will have a 2-meter drill designed to dig and find signs of ancient life underground.
The European Space Agency (ESA) has finally figured out what had caused the Schiaparelli Mars lander to crash on the red planet’s surface. Before the landers’ unlikely demise, scientists involved in the mission were able to recover data from the lander.
ESA asked member nations Friday to cough up an extra 400 million euros ($425 million) to complete the ExoMars exploration of the Red Planet.
According to Space News, an unexplained saturation of its inertial measurement unit (IMU) forced a premature release of its parachute.
The European Space Agency (ESA) released an official report saying that the Schiaparelli crash was caused by a navigational system error.
The European Space Agency blames an inaccurate single-second inertial measurement for the unfortunate crash landing of its Schiaparelli lander on Mars last October 19.
ESA released first colored images of the Schiaparelli lander crash site on the surface of Mars.
Europe’s Mars lander had crashed on Mars and left a crater on the planet’s surface. Scientists are looking at possibilities that this giant dent could be used for scientific studies.
NASA has released a new set of detailed images, revealing the crash site of ESA's EXoMars Schiaparelli lander and the MArs probe lying on the Martian surface.
Until today, scientists and engineers are still trying to figure out what caused the explosion and crash of ESA lander Schiaparelli.
The ExoMars mission still continues despite the Schiaparelli lander’s failure to touch down the surface of Mars.
Despite the loss of Schiaparelli lander, ESA's ExoMars probe will push through with the help of the Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) that successfully swung into place.
Until now, it seems quite likely that the ExoMars Schiaparelli did not have a soft landing.
There's been a lot of suspense surrounding ExoMars Schiaparelli's touchdown on Mars' surface. Now, the European Space Agency (ESA) has announced today that they lost contact with the spacecraft one minute before its touchdown to the red planet's surface.
