Amazing. That rover is the size and mass of an SUV. Radioisotope/electrically powered, it ought to get some insane fuel mileage.

This is not the first time Nasa did somethign like that.
Earlier Rovers had Morse Code tires.. In order to tell how far it had traveled by camera they needed a tread design so the folks who built it cut .--- .--. .-.. in the wheels (JPL in Morse Code) so every where it went it dropped the name JPL.


Home is where I park it.

after a semi "nicked" it. Still have the radios
