Mars Exploration
The Lander
The Northern Light lander probe has a mass under 50 kg (including payload) and is made of an advanced composite material that includes thermal shielding and shock absorption. The probe includes solar arrays to generate power for the instrumentation and lander avionics.
Explore
Our long-term strategy for the exploration of Mars includes proposals to send human explorers. We will characterise the Martian surface environment in order to determine what future technologies will be required to sustain a human presence.
Missions
To date, there have been six successful missions to the surface of Mars. The NASA Viking spacecraft were the first very successful lander missions, deploying two large landers in 1976.
