ABSTRACT
NASA achieved a milestone last week — literally — as the Mars Lunar Roving Vehicle passed the 22.2-miles-traveled mark, the farthest any rover has traveled on Mars so far. In contrast, the early U.S. Mars rover Sojourner, launched in 1997, went just six-tenths of a mile. The record for moon rovers is former USSR's Lunokhod 2, launched in 1997, which went 22.99 miles.
