What the team is working on now

Characterising the Oxia Planum landing site using new orbital imagery, planning a Royal Society 2020 exhibit for ExoMars, working on Mars Science Laboratory operations and science.

We are also working on the Raman and Pancam instruments as part of the ExoMars team.

Looking at new martian meteorites.

We are also developing new technology for Mars Sample Return. Theses samples have to be kept in very controlled, clean environment, so there are lots of engineering and science challenges.

What we’d do with the money

Build an accurate model of the ExoMars Rosalind Franklin rover will help students see how the different instruments will be operated on Mars.
