Hi, this is my first post after a post at the introduction forum. I thought that my first post would be different instead of the planet x and 2012 predictions.

Anyway here is the news ESA is ready with the prototypes and they would be launched in 2015.(Talking about 2015, didnt someone say the world would end in 2012 :lol
)

The link-news.bbc.co.uk...

What exactly do they think that spending more money on Mars is going to find? Are these new Rovers better equipped for the rigors of the red planet?

The recent rover missions while they have proved to bring information to us about the red planet, haven't excited many. Will these rovers change that view?

Well yes definitely other rovers in the past would have to get past any obstacles they come across by going sideways, but this rover is different because it has more payload and can climb over obstacles, that is the unique feature.

Im glad other corporations are taking interest in sending probes to Mars. I wasn't aware of these landers, Thanks for the info! Lets just hope they can get the funding they need. The more funding scientists get, the faster we get to learn about the wonders of our universe!

One of the differences between these rovers and the ones already on Mars is that the mission of ExoMars is to search for signs of past or present life.

Spirit and Opportunity were sent to Mars mostly to study geological features, not to search for life or signs of life.

Good find.

why can't the idiots at NASA send a tv camera equiped microscope to mars...

it would answer the question of life on mars easily...

all these stupid chemical reaction tests can have a infinite number of permutations/combinations for life like in the viking probes fiasco where after 20 years of data analysis all they could say wa it might be life but then it might just be a chemical reaction....!!!!


a microscope on mars would easily solve this problem so if any you NASA lot are reading this get your finger out and stop your stupid chemical tests and go for the direct approach...

If you are so much smarter than the people at NASA why don't you join NASA to help them?


And do you think that a microscope would be enough? They have sent microscopes to Mars, the fact that you ignore it does not make them idiots, right?
