This ‘All Everything”vehicle is a six wheeled rover looks like it just rolled out of a sci-fi movie. It was designed by Parker Brothers, a company that specializes in amazing custom vehicles, has built their own Mars Rover concept. It was shown off at the Kennedy Space Center’s visitor complex in Cape Canaveral, Florida. It an amazing vehicle that measures 28 feet (8.5 meters) long and 13 feet (4 meters) wide, and unbelievably could reach speeds up as high as 70 mph, but on Mars’ rocky terrain it would likely be limited to 15 mph or less. This is vehicle designed to be used by humans to explore the red planet.
The is a concept vehicle, meaning this design won’t even land on Mars. It was designed based on specifications provided by NASA, and it was unveiled this week at Nasa’s Kennedy Space Centre Visitor Complex as part of an educational program to get the public excited about space exploration.
This isn’t just a rover, though. It was designer to split into two parts, with the front retaining two of the six wheels. The back section contains a full laboratory, which can remain stationary as the front section continues to scout around. It’s a neat design, but there’s no guarantee NASA will adopt it for its real Mars rovers.
