Europe’s Mars rover now unlikely to launch before 2026 after Russia’s war on Ukraine

Europe’s beleaguered  ExoMars rover is unlikely to launch before 2026 as the European Space Agency ponders a path forward for the mission, including finding a new rocket,  replacing Russian-built parts in cooperation with NASA, or restarting its partnership with Russia in case that country’s war in Ukraine ends soon. 

ESA representatives outlined their plans for the mission in a press conference on Thursday (March 17) after officially suspending cooperation with Russia’s space agency Roscosmos as a result of sanctions imposed on Russia by ESA member states.
