Looking towards the Mars Rover Control Room
Looking towards the Mars Rover Control Room, taken 7 months ago
In this test facility the rover is actually connected to the control room by a cable - when in 2020 the real rover will be rather a long way from Earth. So what is being tested is the ability of the rover to work out and traverse a safe route between or over the obstacles to a destination suggested by control.
