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.
