The fate of the ExoMars lander, Schiaparelli, remains uncertain. European Space Agency mission controllers had been optimistic on Wednesday night that a definitive answer would be known by Thursday morning's news briefing. However, although some more details have been made public about the lander's descent, it is not yet clear whether it hit the martian surface at a speed it could not survive.

European Space Agency (ESA) officials stressed.
