Caption: Mars Science Laboratory testing, with clean room engineers and technicians watching. This rover, in development by NASA for launch in 2011, will have six wheels to allow it to cope with rough terrain. A robotic arm will collect samples, and a 2.1-metre-high mast rising above the rover will carry a camera to photograph the landscape. The rover will also have an instrument that uses a laser to analyse the chemical composition of samples on the surface. Photographed in 2010, at the Spacecraft Assembly Facility at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California, USA.
