This is the NASA/JPL vid that's been making the rounds on the internet.

If it works 15.gif NASA will have landed a mobile laboratory the size of an SUV on the surface of Mars.

Allow me to say this much: If I were a betting man... lmao.gif lmao.gif lmao.gif

This type of thing isn't inexpensive either. 13.gif

The ship cost a cool $2.5 billion to design, build and launch

That's a lot of money invested for something that seems like it has zero chances of working.

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?

That video was exciting. I'm assuming they will get it right because they should have learned from all their mistakes and it looks feasible to me.
