NetLander Mission Postponed Discovery Program March 14, 2003

The French space agency CNES has postponed the 2007 launch of the NetLander mission until no earlier than 2009. The mission was to deploy four landers, establishing the first network of science stations on another planet, to study the subsurface, interior, atmosphere, ionospheric structure, and rotational dynamics of Mars. NASA's Office of Space Science was contributing to the development of three NetLander science instruments as a Discovery Mission of Opportunity managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. JPL is a division of the California Institute of Technology located in Pasadena, CA.
