To boldly go where no furry, adorable blue monster has gone before.
Our GROVER has a Grover!
NASA’s new Earth-bound rover began testing on the Greenland ice sheet this week. GROVER, which stands for both Greenland Rover and Goddard Remotely Operated Vehicle for Exploration and Research, is an autonomous, solar-operated robot that carries a ground-penetrating radar to examine the layers of Greenland’s ice sheet.
This is so cool! It’s design looks so simple and not like a crazy outer space getup. Does it work? I want to see it and the Curiosity Rover race each other.
