The joint European-Russian program ExoMars hopes to find out whether life forms ever existed on Mars. The latest images show part of a crater and perhaps evidence of methane gas on the surface of the planet.
Is there, or has there ever been, life on Mars? European and Russian scientists are hoping to find out, with the first test probe set to land on Mars on Wednesday.
A signal from the European-Russian ExoMars space craft has arrived at Mission Control at the European Space Agency in Darmstadt, Germany. But the response from Lander Schiaparelli remains uncertain.
The European Space Agency has said that its ExoMars lander probably crashed on the surface of the Red Planet during an attempted touchdown. The lander likely hit the ground with a speed greater than 300 km/h (186 mph).
Space missions, even the most noble ones, can get confusing with their mishmash of tech terms and timetables. We've boiled down ExoMars to the basics.
