"Establishing whether life ever existed on Mars is one of the outstanding scientific questions of our time. To address this and other important goals, the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA have agreed to establish a joint programme for the robotic exploration of Mars. The ESA/NASA Programme includes two major missions:
1. An orbiter, to be launched in 2016, dedicated to the temporal and spatial characterisation of atmospheric trace gases of possible biological importance, such as methane and its degradation products, and including the mapping of their source regions.
2. A two-rover mission to be launched in 2018: one rover provided by NASA and the other by ESA. ESA’s ExoMars rover will carry a suite of analytical instruments dedicated to exobiology and geochemistry research: the Pasteur payload. The Rover will travel several kilometres, collecting and analysing samples from outcrops and from the subsurface with a drill, down to a depth of 2 m.
This talk was presenting the latest configuration for the 2018 two-rover mission, concentrating on the ExoMars rover, its instrument payload, and reference surface mission."

**What is the focus of the Exomars Mission? EXPLORING MARS IN 3D :

**Why wouldn't there be life on Mars?

**Mars is a strange planet...What can be a "right location" to send EXOMARS Robots?

**The Exomars Mission: The Instruments, Independent Robots

**The Reference Service Mission: how to calibrate the robots? By using black samples made of Moon rocks....

What type of organic molecules are they looking for?

*Is the results will be 100% definite? Life on Mars for sure or not?

*Life on Mars In the volcanoes?

*Is Mars for the Martians?

*Magnetic field on Mars...
