Eagle Engineering, team 1138, has solved today's problem of exploration of not our planet, but others in our solar system by creating a Vex Mars rover. This rover can move across the ground of Mars, pick up samples with its shovel, put them in a test tube, and repeat this process four more times with double efficiency.

Oh, just one question... I can't quite tell from the drawings, but what kind of features does it have for dealing with rough terrain? I know we sometimes have trouble with loosing traction on the competition mats!
