On 19 October, the landing demonstrator known as ExoMars Schiaparelli will touch down on Mars after detaching itself from the Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO). Its job is to validate new technologies and to demonstrate Europe’s ability to land on Mars, as well as to take scientific measurements. The orbiter’s trajectory has just been adjusted to ensure the success of the two events scheduled for 19 October—the landing of Schiaparelli in the Meridiani Planum region, and TGO’s insertion into orbit.
