A bacteria with screws all over its body? Or a colorful space fly? This is how the children Johannes met at the planetarium imagine aliens. Although extraterrestrial life has not been discovered yet. The ExoMars mission could soon bring the breakthrough. A robot vehicle is going to fly to Mars to explore the red planet! The preparations are already under way and Johannes is part of it. He visits a true-to-original Mars landscape, on which scientists test the robot vehicle. Why is it worth looking for life on Mars? And what kind of extraterrestrials might wait there?
