A Russian Proton-M rocket with Briz-M upper stage will launch during the 2020 interplanetary launch window to send the Russian-European ExoMars 2020 mission on its way as the second of two planned ExoMars flights, the first having arrived at its destination in 2016 with the successful orbital insertion of the Trace Gas Orbiter and the partially successful landing demonstration by the Schiaparelli lander. The ExoMars 2020 mission aims to send an 828-Kilogram Surface Science Platform and 310kg Rover to the surface of Mars for a year-long exploration mission.

|Payload:||Mars Robotic Science Rover|
A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket will launch NASA’s next flagship Mars rover in the 2020 interplanetary launch window to embark on an investigation focused on the astrobiological aspects of Martian evolution. The rover, largely based on the design of the Curiosity Mars Science Laboratory Rover, will carry nine instruments to investigate the the Martian surface and its geological processes and history including an assessment of past habitability and the preservation of biosignatures within accessible geological materials. To send the rover on its way, Atlas V will employ its 541 configuration with four Solid Rocket Boosters.
