MetNet may fly on a 2015-2016 Chinese orbiter

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

In the light of the latest news over InSight's possible landing site, I thought I'd bump this thread to find out if anyone's heard anything new about MetNet - I seem to recall a piggyback with InSight being mooted at one point, but that possibility appears to have gone by the wayside. Although MetNet's Twitter account seems fairly active, I can't seem to find any updates on the precursor mission itself more recent than 2013.

I'm hoping a reduction in launch costs over the next few years will finally make this (and other occasionally mooted missions from across the world) cheap enough to fly.

You're in luck! (sort of....)

The European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2015, to be held in Vienna, Austria, on 1217 April 2015, now has abstracts online here:

and among them is this:

Bottom line, though, they are still negotiating for a ride to Mars.
