ExoMars envia primeiras fotos de Marte

<p>Pela primeira vez, a sonda <span class="caps">TGO</span>, do programa ExoMars, enviou para a terra dados recolhidos pelos vários instrumentos de que dispõe a bordo, tal como as <a href="http://www.space.com/34843-exomars-cassis-first-mars-photos.html">primeiras fotografias</a> em alta resolução da superfície de Marte.</p> <p><span class="caps">TGO</span> significa Trace Gas Orbiter – É uma sonda que se mantém na órbita de Marte à procura de vestígios de gases que possam evidenciar a presença (passada ou presente) de vida.</p> <p>A sonda é uma realização conjunta das agências espaciais europeia (<span class="caps">ESA</span>) e russa (Roscosmos). O teste dos vários aparelhos a bordo demorou duas órbitas de Marte (20 a 28 de novembro).</p> <p>Embora o <a href="http://www.space.com/34471-exomars-mission-96-percent-successful-esa.html">módulo Schiapparelli</a> tenha ficado inutilizado ao embater na superfície do planeta, a sonda está a conseguir comunicar com os dois aparelhos da <span class="caps">NASA</span>, Curiosity e Opportunity, que estão na superfície de Marte. </p> <iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/opqz5mM8JMA?list=PLbyvawxScNbvS4TUXFpaxXwUgzZUd7Pzx" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="tl" dir="ltr">Networking at the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/RedPlanet?src=hash">#RedPlanet</a>! <span class="caps">ESA</span>'s <a href="https://twitter.com/ESA_TGO"><code>ESA_TGO</a> aces data relay test w/NASA&#39;s <a href="https://twitter.com/MarsRovers"></code>MarsRovers</a> & <a href="https://twitter.com/MarsCuriosity"><code>MarsCuriosity</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/datarelay?src=hash">#datarelay</a> <a href="https://t.co/78jSt3YSHq">https://t.co/78jSt3YSHq</a> <a href="https://t.co/53wgrm5YLv">pic.twitter.com/53wgrm5YLv</a></p>&mdash; ESA Operations (</code>esaoperations) <a href="https://twitter.com/esaoperations/status/803892294474731520">November 30, 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Mars?src=hash">#Mars</a> labyrinth – Was there a former ocean within Utopia Planitia?
