New Mars Rover Revealed

OR-1121-2013-004

Due to the budget sequestration (there’s a word to make a bull nervous), NASA’s funding level going forward remains a charged subject. Some are also suggesting that monies spent on outer space be redirected to exploring inner space—namely, in the planet’s oceans.

As the debates continue, we’ve managed to secure the only known photo of the latest design in the lineup of Mars rovers. Unofficially dubbed “Despair,” it will follow the successes of Curiosity and Opportunity and, in a cost-cutting move, reportedly be launched from the back of a tow truck. After landing in an as-yet-to-be-determined location, scientists believe Despair’s mission will finally answer one of humankinds’ most-asked questions: What goes first, the roof or the rubber?
