A Mars Sample Return mission represents one of the most challenging space ventures possible for robotic exploration.

Still probably many years in the future and most likely international in nature, a Mars Sample Return mission represents one of the most challenging space ventures possible for robotic exploration. First a sample container must be landed on Mars, along with a rover to retrieve a cache of samples carefully selected by a previous mission. Then, once filled, it will be launched back up to Mars orbit to be captured by a return spacecraft and transported back to Earth. Credit: ESA
