ESA is planning to send a Martian lander to Mars in 2020. The lander is named ExoMars 2020. To test the landing sequence the team will make drop tests from balloons with two dummy re-entry bodies, one weighing 800 kg and one 2000 kg.
The tests are to be performed at SSC’s facilities at Esrange Space Center.
