Rover Team Tests Mars Moves on Earth
The driver went sand dune driving and now rover is stuck. If they can't get it out of this pit, the person responsible will go down as the biggest douche-bag ever. I don't even want to know how much it cost. Or did they get it out already?
**edit Is that special little camo net they have hanging really needed?

They've done well with those rovers but it would still be a crap way for it to finish.
Have they got a tow rope on the other one?
Note for NASA: spade attachment for robot arm next time.
The camo net is just wrong.

They have it all wrong again. Why not get the folks in there that know how to drive in those conditions. All they need to do is hire some Red Necks to getter done!
Connection refused, try again later.

It was the guy in the white dress and blue slippers!
It'snot a camo net. It's a Martian Vertical Geology simulation apperatus. Very similar to a camo net and made by the same poeple but costs 100x as much.
6 wheel drive and it can't get out a pot hole.

Hah, I bet that net cost a grand a square ft. Yeah, while they have that extra rover driving through bisquick, I'm going to make breakfast. I think it was that guy too, he looks like a rookie! lol Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Huh? Think, McFly! Think!
