Future Mars rovers could be controlled from the space station


NASA’s Curiosity rover explores Mars, collecting data and transmitting it back to Earth. Scientists at a NASA facility here on Earth currently control the rover’s movements, but NASA hopes to change that in its next generation of rovers, and allow astronauts on the International Space Station to control them, reports.

New research is being conducted at the Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, to determine how this plan would work. This is the center where scientists once built a moonscape to test the K-10 planetary rover before its deployment.
