What they're basically asking you to do is help the Rovers learn how to identify potentially impassable sand to avoid getting stuck and dying. Simple program allows you to mark soil types that the Rovers will eventually learn to recognize for themselves. Help out a stupid rover. If you have some spare time after ATS shuts down.

Not quite at a point yet where you can teach it to investigate things you feel are anomalous:


But, hey. Gotta start somewhere.

P.S. -- Doesn't work so great on mobile device. Desktop recommended.

Stay away from water more than 1 inch deep and muddy soil.

And people think a mars colony is in the near future....lol...

They'd probably do better in that than that powdery windblown stuff. What they need is something way more bitchin.

Yeah. But avoiding dust means a lot of places you can't go. Avoiding water and mud means you can go...everywhere.


Speaking of bitchin, low gravity surf would be totally gnarly.

Now that is a sweet ride...
Not my style but still cool.

People have their fantasies. A few daredevils might eventually make it there to die horribly. Famous for being insane. A Moon base is another one.

"Yeah, let's go live somewhere with no air and dirt made of microscopic glass shards! Easy peasy!"
"But there's a mostly unexplored ocean just fifty miles from--"
"--Moon base, here we come!"

You'd definitely get some huge swells but it may never curl because the weight of the wave might never fall to crest out.

Waves break because the base of the swell gets slowed down by drag on the reef and the crest overtakes it. Lower gravity would make the breaking wave higher/steeper before the inevitable occurs. The breaking wave would be higher, the barrels would be more hollow.

The moon is a bit more plausible.
At least it’s within reach for supplies.

Mars will be a one way trip with a horrible televised death so you should have lots of volunteers.

They have a "big rocks" category which might also help it avoid cliffs. I guess it has a gyro somewhere that keeps it from going on terrain at too steep an angle. I remember narrowly avoiding death as a kid when driving my grandpa's International Harvester tractor along a 47 degree or so grade.

Tubular. Might be nice not to get pounded so hard after a wipeout. Gush water out of your sinuses for a week. But where's the challenge?

Considering time factor where radio signals from earth take anywhere from 13 to 42 minutes to reach Mars from earth
attempting to steer it from earth is impossible

Someone can correct me, I believe what they do now is upload a program to the lander saying go so far in that direction and stop, Once there will examine the terrain and pick out new route based on what they see in from

To be sure, it is the wheels that are the vexing problem, a lot of iron oxide and a little, possible damp is likely just as profound on so reactive aluminium on Mars, and when there is the need to traverse some gritty stuff on the ground, a sand, that could make the aluminium, repeatedly vulnerable.
It's all relative though, I mostly think of Mar's surface as being, (at this time) something like a thin pizza and dry as a 'bone' the pictures mostly demonstrate a delicate, precarious system at the crust for sure rocks and all, not so easily replicated on Earth. What's going on deeper down though, still seems to affect the surface in some way, and that is not so clear.

A small propeller on top would have been a super idea. Inspector gadget kind.

Sometimes less traction is better, and worst case scenario would be a short hop to new ground.

In fact, teach it to hop, skip and jump.

Get the biggest monster truck replace engine with this www.zmescience.com...
Put in a Plutonium battery or 10 after all its a Monster truck lots of cargo space .

We really need to Up the anti this is kiddy stuff lol
Ps a Anti-theft device may be in order martians like Marvin have been know to want to blow up the earth we can not afford having him get a hold of the battery's .
But if worse comes to worse Buggs will save us .
