ESA's ExoMars rover Rosalind Franklin's twin Amalia performing drill testing at ALTEC in Turin, Italy on 3 Febuary 2023. Engineers are using the Amalia rover to recreate different scenarios and help them take decisions that will keep Rosalind safe in the challenging environment of Mars. The model is fully representative of what the rover will be able to do on the Red Planet. Amalia has so far demonstrated drilling soil samples down to 1.7 metres, drive through rough terrain and operate all the instruments while sending scientific data to the Rover Operations Control Centre (ROCC), the operational hub that will orchestrate the roaming of the European-built rover on Mars.
