Jules Vernes? Do you mean ATVs?
That is NOT what it did, it simply hovered, lowered the rover on to the surface and then crashed. There was no lifting anything back into the atmosphere.
You really do not like it when people have contra - ideas to yours do you??
So tell me - what is the calculated M3 of recoverable ice - water available on the moon?
If you have never heard of the Jules Verne resupply vehicle then I am truly disappointed... nuff said on that point, unless being obsequious is also part of your reply
"It simply hovered and crashed"!! Sorry, that is really too ridiculous to even reply to because crashing would have meant crashing onto Opportunity. It lifted, as it was designed to do....
