To support the European ExoMars Mission to explore the Red Planet, an international project is being launched on 20 January 2011 with the aim of simulating the entry of spacecraft into the martian atmosphere. The project team is made up of German, Russian and Italian scientists and will be coordinated by the Supersonic and Hypersonic Technology Department at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology. Researchers are simulating the martian atmosphere in a wind tunnel at the DLR site in Cologne.
