Considering all the work and time that goes into driving it, I doubt you'd want to do so - lol. It moves a few inches to a few feet at a time as I understand it, with continual pauses to analyze the ground ahead of and around it. Add in that the time lag to send messages between Mars and Earth averages 10-15 minutes each way.

As the reporter in The Martian said when they first made contact with Watney, "It will be a dreadfully slow conversation."

Adrian Brown sent in this incredible photo from the coast of the Isle of Wight, England. Those "shooting stars" you see are meteors, which streaked across the sky during the Eta Aquarids meteor shower last week. The stone structure in the foreground is a medieval lighthouse, constructed in 1314, which the photographer says locals call the "Pepperpot." Thanks, Adrian, for sending in this great image! Have a cool photo of a meteor shower? Send it to spacephotos at space dot com. For more images like this one, visit us here: http://buff.ly/1skMee4

Is it naive to think that we're the first intelligent (and tech-building) species the universe has ever known? http://buff.ly/23O6kZo

What a view, New Shepard. What a view.
The New Shepard last flew on April 2, 2016 and made a spectacular landing at their West Texas launch site. The rocket's 'Vent Cam' captured imagery of the descent. It reaching an apogee of 339,178 feet (103 km) and the engine were restarted at 3,600 feet for the landing.
