Pretty much ever rover sent to Mars, or elsewhere, is the same. The computer programming does all the work. I remember them sending a rover to Mars that crashed. Someone had entered the measurements as meters rather than feet. Basically, when the rover thought it had 100 meters it only had 100 feet. Still, that seems like an awful lot of steps. I wonder why they abandoned the balloon method. Is the rover too big?
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
