NASA has been showing of a new concept design for a manned Mars rover at the Kennedy Space Centre’s Visitor Centre. The six-wheeled solar powered design comes from the vehicle design studio of Parker Brothers Concepts. The firm is more used to making extraordinary vehicles for movie makers.

Its pressurised design is a descendent of the fully open Moon rover that allowed two Apollo astronauts to ride on the Moon in the early 1970s. This new one can carry four astronauts.
