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?
What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
