See Where The ExoMars Lander Crashed On The Red Planet

On October 19, 2016, the European Space Agency's ExoMars lander, Schiaparelli, was supposed to make a bumpy, but safe landing on Mars. What happened instead was a devastating crash landing, which scientists believe may have been caused by a software glitch. Since then, we've gotten photographic proof of the failed landing, which you can check out in the video below.
