‘Twin Rovers’ to Explore Mars in 2003 Reuters

Twin rovers with the specific mission of discovering sites where water might have once pooled on Mars will roam the planet’s surface in 2004, NASA said on Thursday. The U.S. space agency said it would launch the two golf cart-sized rovers separately in 2003. While scientists have yet to choose the precise landing sites, they said one might go to a safe, flat area while the second might take on riskier, more aggressive terrain.
