Exomars Rover : From concept to Reality. Called Bruno preparing to launch 2020
In Stevenage, UK, a rover is being built that will carry a drill and a suite of instruments dedicated to exobiology and geochemistry research. It’s said to be the first mission to combine the capability to move across the surface and to study Mars at depth.
The primary goal of the ExoMars programme is to address the question of whether life has ever existed on the red planet.
The first part of the mission was launched in March 2016. It was with the Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) and Schiaparelli, an entry, descent and landing demonstrator module.
The second part is planned for launch in 2020 and comprises the rover and a surface science platform.
ExoMars is a joint endeavour between ESA and the Russian space agency, Roscosmos.
This video focusses on the rover and explains what it plans to achieve on Mars.
What are your thoughts on Mars? Great to have British connection with the mission
