SCIENCE AND SPACE EXPLORATION:
Thales Alenia Space has always played an integral role in these hugely successful science and exploration programs. We also played a lead role in the recent Rosetta-Philae comet landing mission, in particular taking charge of the assembly, integration and testing of the Rosetta probe, as well as Europe's Bepi-Colombo mission to explore the planet Mercury. In 2015, Thales Alenia Space is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Cassini-Huygens mission, including the landing on Saturn's largest moon, Titan, by the Huygens probe, built by Thales Alenia Space as prime contractor. Our next scientific challenge is the European program Euclid, designed to help further our understanding of dark matter. The company is also a prime contractor on the ExoMars mission, which aims to study the Martian environment, atmosphere and soil. This mission will generate a mother lode of data, feeding researchers for many years to come. For the 2016 mission, Thales Alenia Space is in charge of designing the reentry module and designing and integrating the orbital module. On the 2018 mission, the French-Italian joint venture is in charge of developing the navigation and guidance system for the orbital and descent modules, as well as designing the Martian rover and building the analysis lab carried by the rover. This lab features a perforator, capable of drilling two meters deep into the Martian soil and removing samples.
