    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    V8? Pushrods? Then they will have to carry some oxygen for the engine ...

    So does it dock to a pressurized structure?

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    body on frame

    it has an inch of water ice as radiation shield. The tent covered space on the back is a “suit port” where astronauts can crawl into the suits from the inside where the suits are ported to the cabin. I see no mention of rtg so it’s relying on a central charging station. Sounds like a universal chassis.

    A lunar camper van! Cool. So looking forward to these missions.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I wonder if NASA realizes that photos like these do nothing but fuel the conspiracy theory whack jobs for decades.

    Maybe it’s like a slide in bed camper where they can connect it to the double wide home base and the chassis goes off to be fitted out for hauling materials or back hoe excavator attachments?


    Just think of the off road options. Battery power pack trailer w stacks of solar panels.

    Reminds me of The Martian, what Matt Damon drove.

    It does have that retro Airstream look

    I can never pass up the opportunity to “teacher brag.”

    This couple were students in my physics class. She posted this just this week.

    Awesome indeed! A friend who worked @ JPL had a TShirt that said "As a matter of fact, I am a rocket scientist"

    As long as we are talking about Mars, I recommend watching "Goodnight Oppy". Well done film following the development and lifecycle of the Opportunity and Spirit rovers NASA sent up there. Planned 90 day mission that for Opportunity stretched into 15 years. It is on Prime right now.
