Mars Rover Driver
by Scott Maxwell and Catherine Chambers
No one has yet visited Mars – at least, no humans have. Robot rovers have explored the surface of the Red Planet, and it's the job of people on Earth to control their every movement. Find out what's involved in being a rover driver, the tools and skills you need, and the difficulties of controlling something that's millions of miles away.
