Announcement of Opportunity for Interdisciplinary Scientists and Guest Investigators in the ExoMars 2022 mission
This Announcement of Opportunity (AO) solicits the participation of the scientific community as Interdisciplinary Scientists or Guest Investigators in the ExoMars 2022 mission. The deadline for proposals is 15 February 2021, 12:00 (noon) CET.
Sea salt embedded in the dusty surface of Mars and lofted into the planet's atmosphere has led to the discovery of hydrogen chloride – the first time the ESA-Roscosmos ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter has detected a new gas. The spacecraft is also providing new information about how Mars is losing its water.
ESA's ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter has spotted new gas signatures at Mars. These unlock new secrets about the martian atmosphere, and will enable a more accurate determination of whether there is methane, a gas associated with biological or geological activity, at the planet.
If Rosalind Franklin had had a birthday wish, she probably never would have dreamed of having her name roving on Mars.
