Mars Rover to Help Visitor Complex Kick off New Mars Exhibit
 
It looks like something out of this world, but that’s exactly where it would work. A futuristic Mars rover concept vehicle was recently unveiled at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex with a goal of inspiration and education as NASA continues developing plans for its journey to the Red Planet.
 
The rover operates on an electric motor, powered by solar panels and a 700-volt battery. The rover separates in the middle with the front area designed for scouting and equipped with a radio and navigation provided by the Global Positioning System. The back section serves as a laboratory which can disconnect for autonomous research. While this exact rover is not expected to operate on Mars, one or more of its elements could make its way into a rover astronauts will drive on the Red Planet.
 
 
 
 
That being said, this isn’t a NASA product. Despite being shown off at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and wearing NASA’s own badge right on its nose, the vehicle was actually crafted by a team of custom car builders who were clearly aiming for a specific look at the expense of all else. Still, the rover is a pretty capable machine, and is capable of speeds as high as 70 mph (around 15 mph on Mars) via its electric drivetrain. You definitely won’t see NASA sending one of these into space any time soon, but it sure is pretty to look at.

I really don't see that thing cruising around Mars anytime soon. Looks like a bunch of show to give NASA a boost in the ratings.

Yeah! But, it's fun to imagine. I suppose the next generation or two will have to decide how far to go with it. What economic reason would there be to fully tackle this endeavor?

still, it's nice to dream...

This design was conceptualised in a way that autonomous systems would be able to construct its skeleton in the future. Foster + Partners’ design aids the development of technologies generating fabrication capabilities and solutions on earth. Hence, aiming to minimize human intervention in space architecture, this futuristic design approach sets the stones for advancement in research for alternative living systems.

The proposal considers not only the aspects of delivery and deployment, but also construction and operations. Adaptive and semi-autonomous, this design stands out for its futuristic and innovative dimension. Built with the capability of withstanding extreme conditions of space travel, this project aims to fulfil the goal of long-term existence in extra-terrestrial conditions.
