The surface of Mars has been recreated in Hertfordshire as part of European efforts to send a rover to the red planet in search of life.

The 30 metre-wide test centre at the Airbus Defence and Space site in Stevenage looks like a giant sandpit and has been created using rocks from DIY shops, but is part of the £1.2bn joint European Space Agency's Exomars mission due for launch in 2018.

It aims to prove for the first time if there really is, or ever has been, life on Mars.
