NASA’s Badass Mars Rover Concept Looks Like It Was Designed By Bruce Wayne
NASA is planning for a crew of astronauts to orbit Mars in 2033 in an ambitious mission. Then if that goes well, NASA hopes to land on Mars, and they will need to have a vehicle to explore the red planet. Despite the plans of reaching Mars being over a decade away, NASA is creating a Mars rover, and the space agency unveiled a concept vehicle that looks futuristic AF.
NASA revealed the badass Mars rover concept vehicle at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
The 6,000-pound, 24-foot, six-wheel space vehicle looks like it was designed by Bruce Wayne. The rover is reported to have a top speed of 60 to 70 mph and is driven by an electric motor, which is powered by solar panels and a 700-volt battery. The rover seats four and drives much like an SUV. The concept vehicle has an open space in the rear to serve as a lab for Martian research.
During the kickoff of the “Summer of Mars” event at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, the spaceship-like vehicle, which looks like Batman’s Tumbler from “The Dark Knight,” was paraded out to the public.
