NASA’s Mars Rover Is As Cool As The Batmobile SUV
Either NASA got some help from Bruce Wayne or the people behind the new Mars Rover concept are huge fans of the Dark Knight. NASA recently unveiled the new Mars Rover and it looks a lot like something Batman would drive.
According to Digital Trends, the new Mars Rover concept was made by Parker Brothers Concepts. The company, which is based in Florida, is also responsible for the Tumbler Batmobile replica that Team Galag of Saudi Arabia was supposed to race in the Gumball 3000 rally.
BGR describes the Mars rover as "a cross between a Halo warthog, the Mako from "Mass Effect", and the Batmobile." Those familiar with the vehicles mentioned will instantly know that the Mars rover looks something out of the ordinary. The concept rover is
It comes with mock navigation, life support, and communication systems and will come with a built-in laboratory. The 28-feet long and 5,000-pound rover is made of aluminum and carbon fiber. It sports six massive wheels that are theoretically capable of traveling on Mars' surface.
NASA has already sent four rovers to Mars but they were all unmanned. The Batmobile-like rover is designed to look like something that can carry human beings on the surface of the red planet as they conduct some tests and do more exploration. That is if the said space vehicle will actually be launched into space and used by astronauts and scientists on Mars.
The Mars rover concept is actually just one of the brilliant ways that NASA employed to get people excited and more interested in what they do. The eye-catching futuristic vehicle is there for the simple reason of catching everyone's attention. In other words, it's not going to Mars.
Those who want to get a glimpse of the Mars rover can visit the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex at Cape Canaveral. The Mars rover is one of the main attractions at the "Summer of Mars" program of NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The said program teaches visitors about the agency's efforts to bring man to Mars.
