At some point between its entry into the Martian atmosphere and when it was to touch down, the Schiaparelli lander stopped transmitting. The ESA probe’s traveling companion for the prior seven months, the ExoMars 2016 Trace Gas Orbiter successfully rounded the Red Planet, but Schiaparelli went missing. TGO will map the methane in Mars’ atmosphere in search of signs of life, while also relaying communications.
