Major Project: Rover Research

I decided to begin researching the previous Mars rovers and found some interesting videos and documentaries. I also decided to try a couple of sketches of the rovers to begin to get a feel of the way they were designed.

This documentary follows the team that created and controlled the Spirit and Opportunity rovers on Mars, from the creation of the rovers to the moment they discovered evidence that water may have once existed on Mars.


This short video shows how the Mars Laboratory Rover, Curiosity, was created and it journey to Mars.


And here are two animations that show the Spirit and Curiosity rovers on their mission to Mars.



And finally here are my sketches of Spirit/Opportunity and Curiosity.
