ExoMars (Exobiology on Mars) is a joint space mission of the European Space Agency and Russia. This astrobiology programme seeks to find life on Mars. In 2016, the Trace Gas Orbiter was launched into the Mars orbit under the first phase. The second part of the mission involves Kazachok lander delivering Rosalind Franklin rover on the Martian surface. The rover will seek to penetrate up to 2 metres below the Martian surface. It was initially set to be launched last year, but was deferred to September 2022.
