The craft is part of the ExoMars mission, a joint project between the European Space Agency (ESA) and Russia’s Roscosmos, and assembled in Stevenage, England. This year, the car will begin functional tests behind it, confirming that all hardware is “in flight”. He is currently in an ultra-clean room at Thales Alenia Aerospace HQ in Turin, Italy, along with launch partner, Russia’s Kazachok landing pad. There will be a final review in April, before the rover and other components of the mission are sent to the launch site in Baikonur, Kazakhstan, to prepare for takeoff. The Rosalind Franklin, formerly known as ExoMars Rover, was scheduled to launch on the Red Planet in the summer of 2020, around the same time as the NASA Perseverance rover, but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. ESA officials felt that more testing, including a parachute, was needed before the launch was safe and there was no time to complete the necessary tests due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. It is now scheduled to launch this coming September, reaching Mars in June 2023. “The rover is ready and, combined with the success of the recent parachute landing test, we’re sure to be in time for the September launch date. “Only once every two years and for ten days, the celestial mechanics will allow the spacecraft to reach Mars from Earth in the shortest possible time – nine months. If all goes as planned, the European Space Agency will become the fourth agency to operate only a vehicle in another world – after the Soviet Union, NASA and China. In preparation for this moment, the rover Rosalind Franklin successfully left the platform during recent tests at the Mars terrain simulator in Turin.
