We're sending another rover in 2020. Contrary to the article, what I've heard is that the new rover will be more MER-like than MSL-like -- think MER with an RTG -- but I might have fallen behind the latest 2020 discussions.

Either way -- hey, it's a rover! And it's going to Mars!

I don't understand why they'd go back to solar, given the problems with dust. Unless they (you) put a windscreen wiper on it!
 
Smart move! But maybe juice the reactor up a bit so she can do a bit more than MSL can manage? :)
