Caption: Mars sample return mission. Artwork of aeroshell-encased spacecraft approaching Mars as part of the proposed Mars sample return mission. This spacecraft would hold a sample-retrieving rover and an ascent vehicle. The rover would transfer samples to the ascent vehicle which would rendezvous with an orbiting spacecraft that would return the samples to Earth. NASA and the European Space Agency are collaborating on proposals for a mission to gather samples of Martian rocks and bring them to Earth after 2020.
