Produced by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), this wall chart describes the space mission to Mars, the experiments aboard, whether there is water on Mars, Britain's Beagle2 lander and the search for life on Mars. Mars Express was the European Space Agency’s first mission to Mars. Its role is to survey the planet from the topmost layer of the atmosphere down to beneath the surface. Since its arrival at Mars, the mission has proved a great success and has given us many new insights into the Martian environment. STFC is a part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) partnership of research councils.
