One of the attractions at the ILA2006 Space Pavilion is the full-scale ExoMars rover mock-up based on an artists impression of Europe’s next mission to Mars and the first robotic mission with the European Space Exploration Programme Aurora.
At the International Aerospace Exhibition and Conference (ILA) in Berlin, May 2006, a new ‘International Space Village’ within groups together space agencies and industry from around the world. In the space pavilion Europes highly ambitious Aurora programme for the future exploration of Mars and the solar system is featured, including the ExoMars rover.
The large rover and its deployment on the surface of Mars are probably the most challenging elements of the ExoMars mission, currently slated for launch in 2011, which will search for traces of life on and underneath the surface of Mars. The rover will carry a payload, dubbed Pasteur, and will be equipped with a drilling system that will reach up to two metres below the Martian surface.
Through the mock-up and accompanying background animation the many visitors to ILA2006 could gain an appreciation of the different mission phases, the rover surface operations, as well as the rovers expected size.
