“October 16, 2016, has successfully passed the Department airborne demonstration module Schiaparelli (“list”) from the orbital module TGO (Trace Gas Orbiter — orbital module) mission “ExoMars-2016″ on the approach to Mars”, — stated in the message.
In the future, Schiaparelli continues on a trajectory crossing the orbit of Mars, and the spacecraft TGO October 17, will perform a maneuver transition to hyperbolic with respect to Mars’s orbit on 19 October will begin braking maneuvers for entering orbit of the red planet.
