Weather, Climate and Water on Mars:

Both ESA and NASA are active exploring Mars and both agencies will launch missions to obtain new knowledge about Mars. ESA's Trace Gas Orbiter will investigate composition and dynamics of the atmosphere and NASA's InSight lander will provide new knowledge about the interior of the planet. Even the Niels Bohr Institute will be expected to play a small role being involved in 3 of 7 experiments on NASA's 2020 Mars Rover - the first mission to collect and cache samples later to be returned to Earth.
