I love this little (car-sized) Mars explorer, and how much it’s being personified as some kind of hyper intelligent and delicate toddler. Moving at an adorable 1/10th of a mile per hour, it’s going to take pictures of Mountains we haven’t seen. I really think that once it returns (will it, or will it sort of just die on Mars, after all of this personification?!) one of the NASA folks is going to take it home like a retired police dog, and walk it and go on adventures with it, and there will probably be a reality show about this.
