Howdy folks. I captured some video from a web browser-based game I'm working on in which you get to control Mars rovers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jcL4mX8G9o

That terrain, by the way, is the Gale Crater mound where MSL will be exploring.

Cheers,
Adam

If Spirit could have made some of those moves, she'd still be with us today!

Most likely. The suspension is not exactly rocker-bogie here. Once I saw the rover doing wheelies there was no turning back. Part of the battle is simply keeping the rover from tipping past 90 degrees. I'm guessing the consequences in real life would be just as heartbreaking as a full on explosion.
