For the next European mission to Mars in 2020, new techniques will be applied to ensure a good landing.
Two parachutes instead of just one, in particular the second will be the largest parachute ever used for a landing on Mars, well 35 meters in diameter.
This first test was carried out releasing everything from 1.5 km altitude, but is planning a second test starting from 30 km altitude to simulate more closely the “real” Martian conditions.

Let’s hope well….
