A joint European-Russian mission aiming to search for traces of life on Mars left Earth's orbit bound for the Red Planet on Monday, the European Space Agency (ESA) said.The ExoMars 2016 mission, a collaboration between the European Space Agency (ESA) and its Russian equivalent Roscosmos, is the first part of a two-phase exploration aiming to answer questions about the existence of life on Earth's neighbor.TGO will analyse Mars' methane in more detail than any previous mission, said ESA, in order to try to determine its likely origin.Thomas Reiter, director of human spaceflight at ESA, said in televised remarks ahead of the launch he believed a manned mission to Mars would take place "maybe in 20 years or 30 years".The ExoMars mission will complement the work of NASA's 'Curiosity' rover which has spent more than three years on Mars as part of the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission.
