European scientists have announced that in 2021 the surface of Mars is explored by Kazacioka


European and Russian space agencies, ESA and Roskosmos, have named a two-part explorer on the Red Planet. The descent platform is named after the Kazačiok Slavic dance.

E 2021 In February, Mars began exploring a plant that left the Kazačiok platform, named after the British scientist Rosalind Franklin. The woman was one of the pioneers of DNA research, says

The names given to the devices cause the space agency to create them. The platform is the Russians, and the platform is European scientists.

Kazačiok not only brings Rosalind Franklin to Mars, but will also be his base on the Red Planet. The technological solution allows to reduce the weight of the driver and to provide mobility. Because of this, the Marsaeigers will weigh only 207 kg.

These devices are part of the ExoMars program. Before Mars, the first devices – the satellite of the methane gas planet TGO – and the Schiaparelli pilot landing capsule were reached. The latter, in fact, instead of descending on the surface of the planet, ran into it and fell.

Once the Red Planet reaches the Red Planet, the TGO will become a communication hub through which data from the equipment will hit our planet.

Rosalinda Franklin Mars will look for molecular signs of life. The device is equipped with tools that allow drilling up to 2 meters deep by collecting and analyzing samples. And Kazažiok, stationary, will monitor the atmosphere of Mars and changes in radiation levels. This data is needed to send people to the planet in the future. The Russian facility will also seek additional evidence to support the theory that water is draining beyond the planet.

The devices are expected to go to Mars next July. They are currently being tested at a space exploration center in Turin, Italy.

"We have a very tight testing schedule in Italy and France. Coordination between the Russian and European teams is essential for the successful launch of the Baikonur Cosmodrome, "said Francois Spoto, head of the ExoMars team, in the ESA report.

The cruise ship is scheduled to land on the plain Red Planet Oxia Planum. The last landing site will be approved by ESA this summer.

2020 In July, the US Space Agency, NASA, plans to send a Marshal to Mars. So far, it is known as Mars 2020.
