On October 19, 2016, the European Space agency (ESA), attempted to land a craft on Mars. It is called the Schiaparelli Mars Lander. This type of landing on Mars had been done several times before by the USA, and at least once by the former USSR. However, for some reason this landing seems special to me. Sadly, it is becoming more apparent that the landing did not go as planned, and the Lander might not have survived.
What happened to Schiaparelli Mars Lander?
As I write this, it is not certain that the soft landing was successful. Updates are available on the ESA Website. For up to date information directly from the source, click here.
