    Title

    Mars Exploration – missions current and future

    Description

    The planet Mars is being explored now and in the coming years with multiple robotic missions from a variety of nations. This session will cover current results from ongoing Mars missions and the designs for proposed Mars missions including expected experiments. Papers on any aspects of the search for evidence of extant or extinct Martian life, and forward and backward contamination are particularly welcome.
