The PanCam instrument for the ExoMars rover
(2017-07-01) - Journal article
The scientific objectives of the ExoMars rover are designed to answer several key questions in the search for life on Mars. In particular, the unique subsurface drill will address some of these, such as the possible existence ...
Planetary science and exploration in the deep subsurface : results from the MINAR Program, Boulby Mine, UK
(2017-04) - Journal article
The subsurface exploration of other planetary bodies can be used to unravel their geological history and assess their habitability. On Mars in particular, present-day habitable conditions may be restricted to the subsurface. ...
Remote detection of past habitability at Mars-analogue hydrothermal alteration terrains using an ExoMars Panoramic Camera emulator
(2015-05-15) - Journal article
A major scientific goal of the European Space Agency’s ExoMars 2018 rover is to identify evidence of life within the martian rock record. Key to this objective is the remote detection of geological substrates that are ...
Mars analogue glaciovolcanic hydrothermal environments in Iceland : detection and implications for astrobiology
(2013-04-15) - Journal article
Volcanism has been a dominant process on Mars, along with a pervasive global cryosphere. Therefore, the interaction between these two is considered likely. Terrestrial glaciovolcanism produces distinctive lithologies and ...
