The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) has captured photographs of Mars’ largest moon Phobos as part of the second set of its science instruments test during its arrival on the Red Planet.
A NASA radio aboard Europe’s Mars orbiter has aced its first relay test. Data was transmitted to the radio from NASA’s Opportunity and Curiosity rovers and was successfully relayed to Earth.
After the controversial Schiaparelli crash on Mars, the European Space Agency has redeemed itself via its Trace Gas Orbited. TGO has sent back its first high-resolution photos of Mars, revealing the astonishing alien Martian landscape.
The European Space Agency’s (ESA) ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter is making its first scientific observations on Mars. Science teams are calibrating their instruments and are about to make the first test observations.
The European Space Agency (ESA) may have lost its Schiaparelli Mars lander during its descent on the Red Planet, but its mothership, the Trace Gas Orbiter, is still orbiting Mars and will begin conducting science observations soon.
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.
The ExoMars mission still continues despite the Schiaparelli lander’s failure to touch down the surface of Mars.
Europe’s Schiaparelli Mars lander has successfully separated from its mothership and is on target to land on the Red Planet.
