MSL-Derived Mars Sample Caching Concept Rover
Filed under pretty pictures, Future Mission Concepts
An artist's concept of an MSL-derived caching rover that uses solar panels instead of an RTG for its power source. This is similar to what was proposed on Dec 4th, 2012 by NASA as the 2020 mission to Mars, though it is unclear whether or not it would use solar panels.
