Robot rovers

Listen

The first of two twin robots sent to Mars by NASA is due to land tomorrow night. The second is scheduled to reach Mars three weeks later. They’ll spend three months roaming up to several hundred miles on Mars, analyzing rocks and soil, and looking for evidence of water. While the Mars rovers are the most prominent robots of their kinds, scientists are putting rovers to work all over our planet.
