NASA begins assembly, test, and launch operations for Mars 2020 rover

The first program will be completed very soon, in 2019; then, we'll send a mission to Mars, ' Putin said. "In 2019 we are planning to launch a mission toward Mars".

"No better place in the world to assemble NASA's next Mars rover than JPL's High Bay 1", said John McNamee of JPL, who is the Mars 2020 project manager via a release issued by the space agency.

Putin said in the new documentary that Russian Federation would also launch a new lunar program and find water on the moon. He made the statement in a documentary by reporter Andrey Kondrashov.

"There are reasons to believe there is water there", the Russian leader said.

This is the first time news has emerged about the mission and Russia's next journey to the planet was previously expected to come in 2020.

The first phase of the ExoMars mission, launched in 2016, consisted of the TGO (Trace Gas Orbiter) orbiter and the Schiaparelli demo landing module.

The announcement comes after NASA unveiled its own £1.5billion ($2.1 bn) Mars exploration bid.

Additionally, scientists will use the instruments aboard the rover to identify and collect samples of rock and soil, encase them in sealed tubes, and leave them on the surface of Mars for potential return to Earth by a future mission to the Red Planet. Last month, Russian social media users reacted with a mixture of self-irony and pessimism over the country's space prospects after Musk's company, SpaceX, successfully launched a Tesla vehicle into Mars' orbit. There will be the lunar program and then the Mars exploration program.

The mission also provides opportunities to gather knowledge and demonstrate technologies that address the challenges of future human expeditions to Mars, including producing oxygen from the Martian atmosphere, and identifying water.
