Mars To Get New Visitors Today

Hey Space Placers!

Tune in today as the European Space Agency (ESA) prepares for its ExoMars spacecraft and Schiaparelli lander arrive at the Red Planet. 

If the landing is successful the Schiaparelli lander will join NASA's Curiosity and Opportunity Rovers on the surface of Mars and add to our knowledge of the planet.

Orbital ATK and NASA Wallops Flight Facility successfully launched the OA-5 resupply mission to the International Space Station on Monday night and here is my photo of the 1st stage rocket from 150 miles away.
