Scientists at the European Space Agency (ESA) received the first signals from the Schiaparelli Mars lander, scientists said on Wednesday. The probe touched ground on the surface of the Red Planet at around 17.00 Italian time (15.00 GMT). Now that the first signals were received, scientists are analysing data to figure out if everything went according to plans. The Schiaparelli probe decelerated from a 21,000 kph speed to the surface of the Red Planet in just six minutes. "If it was able to decelerate in the atmosphere it's ok, but if speed is too high a lot of problems arises", said Roberto Battiston, president of the Italian Space Agency (ASI).
