The Next Mars Rover

 The next rover to explore Mars is about twice as long and more than five times as heavy as any previous rover. Named Curiosity, the six-wheeled robot will study the Martian surface, analyze samples of the rocks and soil, and monitor the planet’s climate. Scientists hope its measurements can be used to determine whether or not there was—or is—life on Mars.
