About the Entry:

EarthRover 1 is a hand-built solar powered electric vehicle, created from wood and metal, found and  bought and fabricated parts.  It has a fully articulated chassis that rolls on 6 wheels with a rocker arm suspension system.  It features a terrarium oxygen supply system - a bio-regenerative life support system, and is manned by EarthMan 2.  Their mission is to study the environment and life of Earth.  EarthRover 1 is based on the NASA created Mars Rover, Curiosity, launched in November 2011 and set to deploy on Mars in August, 2012.  EarthRover is a nod to NASA and the contemporary technologies that are a result of NASA's mission for decades.
