The European Space Agency and Russia's Federal Space Agency have teamed up on the ExoMars orbiter and rover mission to the Red Planet. See the latest news, images, videos and more on the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter and Rover mission here.
The reason Europe's Schiaparelli Mars lander failed to touch down safely last fall is that conflicting data confused the craft's onboard computer, according to a newly completed crash investigation.
From the rocket landings of SpaceX and Blue Origin, to the launch of Mars and asteroid missions, to a NASA probe's arrival at Juno, here are the most important spaceflight stories of the year.
The ESA mission to the Red Planet is underway and the Trace Gas Orbiter is delivering data as planned. The 2020 ExoMars rover mission has been approved and even though the mission's Schiaparelli lander crashed, much was learned from the decent.
The 22-nation European Space Agency forced its science program to lay an offering at the alter of the agency’s struggling ExoMars mission with Russia, allowing a European rover to be launched in 2020 to complement the Mars orbiter already in service.
