That Rover runs on plutonium 238 .. just like the lunar sensors left by the Apollo moon mission. Great idea.. glad I could help. Jim Whitesell phx.

How can anyone not be!? Exploring space is the one thing that will get me excited no matter what my mood is.
So let's be clear. It's a nuclear-powered robot armed with a laser cannon that likes to fly around on a jetpack. To reach Mars, it made like the openings to about four different James Bond films rolled into one. (going supersonic, parachuting down, jetpacking around, and then rappelling down to the surface) And because I can't stress this enough: It's a nuclear powered robot armed with a laser cannon that likes to fly around on a jetpack. When Skynet takes over, I won't say I told you so.
I was actually curious about why we're curious. lol
