ESA selects single rover concept for Mars mission CORDIS

The European Space Agency (ESA) has settled on a concept for its next mission to Mars. A single robot rover will be sent to the Red Planet, along with another, stationary, science package. A forthcoming meeting at ESA’s space and technology centre in the Netherlands will focus on what experiments the craft should take to Mars. The favoured concept – ExoMars – will lead a two-pronged mission.
