Exomars

mąxim

The first mission of the ExoMars programme, scheduled to arrive at Mars in October 2016, consists of a Trace Gas Orbiter plus an entry, descent and landing demonstrator module, known as Schiaparelli. The main objectives of this mission are to search for evidence of methane and other trace atmospheric gases that could be signatures of active biological or geological processes and to test key technologies in preparation for ESA's contribution to subsequent missions to Mars.

ExoMars is a joint endeavour between ESA and Russia’s Roscosmos space agency.

Landing on Mars

The ExoMars 2016 mission will enter orbit around the Red Planet on 19 October. At the same time, its Schiaparelli lander will descend to the surface.

Separation will be reported online on 16 October at 19:20 horari oficial. The media briefings scheduled for 19 and 20 October will be live streamed via http://esa.int .

Realtime coverage of operational milestones in the lead up to separation on 16 October through until landing and orbit insertion on 19 October and in the days after will be provided in a frequently updated article at : http://esa.int/exomars + Information

Live updates

You can find updates from ESA’s space operations centre as the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter approaches and enters orbit around the Red Planet, and the Schiaparelli module lands on its surface on this page:

14 October: TGO final trajectory manoeuvre (08:45 GMT) 16 October: Separation of Schiaparelli from TGO at 14:42 GMT / 16:42 CEST 17 October: TGO orbit-raising manoeuvre at 02:42 GMT / 04:42 CEST 19 October: TGO Mars orbit insertion and Schiaparelli entry, descent and landing on Mars (atmospheric entry expected 14:42 GMT / 16:42 CEST, landing 14:48 GMT / 16:48 CEST) 20 October: Update on Schiaparelli status; descent images expected 21+ October: Schiaparelli status reports until end of mission

Note: Times shown above are actual event times at Mars; the one-way signal travel time between Earth and Mars is currently just under 10 minutes.

The events of 16, 19 and 20 October will also be livestreamed here, all other events will be reported on this page and via Twitter from @esaoperations, @ESA_ExoMars, @ESA_TGO and @ESA_EDM, and via the hashtag #ExoMars.
