Mars 'hopper' may run on nuclear decay and Martian CO2


www.bbc.co.uk

Future robotic missions to Mars could use gas from the Martian atmosphere to "hop" large distances.

Gases gathered from the atmosphere could be compressed, liquified and then used to propel the probe up to a kilometer across the surface of the planet enabling it to traverse large distances in a short amount of time.

And yet we still dont even have hydrogen cars on earth that do everything we need, most of these technologies still require batteries for when fuel is not available so they are back to square one because batteries hold less charge as they age. The technologies are expensive, even clean ones often require batteries which takes away from the whole environmental aspect.. enough of that anyway I think they should put a big sale or chute on it and catch on to some of those winds
