3798. Big Wheels on Mars: Curiosity and Mars 2020
Curiosity is the largest rover yet sent to Mars, and has a large suite of instruments to investigate the atmosphere, the surface, and what lies beneath. In its years on the Martian surface, it has travelled far and revealed fascinating insights. Mars 2020 will be a rover in the same style, with new instruments to investigate other facets of the Red Planet, collecting and caching samples along the way. Kim Steadman, an operations team member on both will give you the low-down on both missions, what we have learned from them, and what more we hope to learn.
