Europe-Russia Mission Blasts Off On Hunt For Life On Mars

ExoMars (Exobiology on Mars) is a large Mars mission to search for biosignatures of Martian life, past or present. It is an astrobiology mission by the European Space Agency (ESA) in collaboration with the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos).

Europe and Russia are set to launch an unmanned spacecraft to smell Mars’ atmosphere for gassy evidence that life once existed on the Red Planet, or may do so still. ExoMars 2016, the first of a two-phase Mars exploration, will see an orbiter hoisted from Kazakhstan at 0931 GMT  on a Russian Proton rocket. 

With its suite of high-tech instruments, the Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) shall arrive at the Red Planet on 19 October 2016 after completing a seven-month-long journey of 496 million kilometers through space. key goal of the mission is to analyze methane, a gas which on Earth is created in large part by living microbes, and traces of which were observed by previous Mars missions.

Extra info:
The programme includes several spacecraft elements to be sent to Mars on two launches. 
The TGO will deliver the ESA-built stationary lander and then proceed to map the sources of methane on Mars and other gases, and in doing so, help select the landing site for the ExoMars rover[7] to be launched in 2018 on a Russian heavy lift Proton launch vehicle.
