CNESMAG 69 - Mars, the New Frontier

Drawing on the in-depth knowledge of Mars gleaned from the exceptional Mars Express, Curiosity, MAVEN, ExoMars, InSight and Mars 2020 missions, France, CNES and our scientific community will be at the forefront of this new saga of the modern age—to conquer what is fast becoming THE new frontier for all of humankind.

 What was previously just a concept to send a
spacecraft to Mars capable of supporting a four-to-sixperson
crew in space for two years is now on the verge
of becoming reality.
