"Future missions fuelled by Europe and the US will retrieve these samples and return them to Earth." How will they return them back to Earth? A manned mission? If it is a manned mission, we will be waiting a long time. We have always been fascinated with Mars and I can't wait to find out the answer to that crucial question of was/is there life on Mars.
Wow! Incredible stuff indeed. That is a very complicated procedure and so much can go wrong with this. It's a good job we have some very clever people on this planet, and I hope they can pull this one off.
