Future Mars Missions at the European Space Agency

It is an exciting time for space exploration as humans will soon move beyond low Earth orbit and return to the Moon for the first time in more than 50 years. In the next leap beyond the Moon, the European Space Agency plans an ambitious exploration strategy which will contribute to a huge international collaborative effort to see the first humans on Mars in the 2040s. This presentation will give you an overview of the work to be done to make this ambition a reality in the coming decade and beyond.
