ExoMars 2016 – Schiaparelli landing and TGO orbit insertion

Together with our students we were watching the ESA’s ExoMars 2016 mission – orbit insertion of TGO (Trace Gas Orbiter) and the landing of module Schiaparelli.

Telemetry signals from Schiaparelli were lost about one minute from the surface during the final landing stages.

I would like to say thank you to my friend and colleague Dr Frantisek Adamcik jr. , for taking these photos.
