  6. ExoMars 2016 en route to Mars

    Publishing date:

    March 14, 2016

    Following its launch and initial orbital manoeuvres, the ExoMars 2016 mission is on its way to Mars, where it will seek and identify atmospheric components indicating recent geological or biological activity on the Red Planet. Once in Mars orbit, the mission’s satellite will study the planet’s atmosphere and evolution, while also providing a platform to relay telecommunications to Earth for later surface operations. This satellite will also release an entry, descent and landing demonstrator module (EDM) to measure parameters during its descent and landing. ExoMars 2016 is an ESA mission to which CNES and French research laboratories are contributing.
