Instrument field trials

Professor Andrew Coates and Dr Ian Hutchinson explain how the ExoMars instruments, the Pancam and Raman spectroscopy instruments can be combined to help scientists identify areas of interest on the surface of Mars.  The video shows how field trips are important to learn first-hand the challenges that the ExoMars rover will face.

This video is part of a series of ten which look at the one of the elements of the European Space Agency’s Aurora programme – Europe’s journey to Mars.
