Dunes OHV Area helps NASA prepare for Mars exploration

Post by Jim_b » Sat May 19, 2012 8:27 am

NASA scientists are using the popular Dumont Dunes OHV area to test how their Curiosity rover will navigate similar terrain on Mars. Curiosity was launched on November 26, 2011 and will travel an estimated 354 million miles before reaching Gale Crater on Mars, later this year.
