JPL Mars Rover

Figuring out how to land on Mars is the one of toughest jobs on Earth. To get it done, this storied organization had to simulate and build a rover that couldn’t be tested in a lab, but still had to survive in unpredictable conditions.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory ran hundreds of simulations to plan for multiple conditions – some impossible to replicate on Earth.
