NASA starts ATLO process for its future Mars Rover mission

NASA begins assembly, test, and launch operations for Mars 2020 rover

The we are going to send a mission to the Mars", Putin said in a second part of a documentary about him.The president added that Russia would continue exploring the Moon, but in a different way than the Soviet Union.The Russian mission would try to reach the poles where there might be water."There is something to do there.

The Russian mission will include multiple journeys to the Red Planet, with the first launch scheduled for 2019.

"No better place in the world to assemble NASA's next Mars rover than JPL's High Bay 1", said John McNamee of JPL, who is the Mars 2020 project manager via a release issued by the space agency.

Mars 2020 rover and its science instruments, which are being developed and fielded utilize new technologies developed by NASA's Space Technology Program, its Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate, and various global partners.

Russian Federation also plans to launch a mission to the polar regions of the Moon.

The statement comes ahead of Sunday's presidential election, in which he will nearly certainly win a fourth term. From the Moon, studying of other planets may start.

This is the first time news has emerged about the mission and Russia's next journey to the planet was previously expected to come in 2020.

The initial stage of the mission, the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter, entered orbit around Mars in October 2016, although an accompanying lander crashed.

NASA hopes the mission will help to answer key questions about the potential for life on Mars.

Last December, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an order that directed his country's space program to send astronauts to the moon and "eventually Mars".

According to NASA, Mars 2020 may only be about the size of an SUV, but its construction is a global affair with a logistical network to match.
