NASA Wants Investigations for a Mars 2020 Rover


www.nasa.gov said:

NASA has released its announcement of an open competition for the planetary community to submit proposals for the science and exploration technology instruments that would be carried aboard the agency's next Mars rover, scheduled for launch in July/August of 2020.

The Mars 2020 rover will explore and assess Mars as a potential habitat for life, search for signs of past life, collect carefully selected samples for possible future return to Earth, and demonstrate technology for future human exploration of the Red Planet.

I am sure for a % of $130 million, i can come up with something.
Will this be open to the `students` too?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I'm sure you could come up with something. I'm absolutely positive that it would not be something that could survive the rigors of a launch, several months in deep space, survive re-entry and landing and still provide useful scientific results from the hostile surface of an alien planet.

Open to students? No, this is for people that REALLY know what they are talking about.
