Catching a ride on the Mars Rover…my experience! [VIDEO]

Every wondered what it is like to ride on the Mars rover? You know the one that showed up in the blockbuster The Martian movie last year?

I was fortunate enough to get to visit the Mars Yard at NASA’s Houston Space Center and catch a ride on the Mars rover and I have video to prove it! Let’s just say this was by far one of the coolest experiences I have had to date. It was fun to see how science fiction meets real life and see the actual Mars rover that is in development today. But not only did I get to see it, I got to ride in it and ask questions about it too!

Watch the first video of my experience. Part 2 will be coming out soon with more questions asked and answered.

    Abby, I loved this wonderful video so much that I imagined that you were already on Mars already driving the rover! I took a couple of screenshots of the video and added a comment about AAA road service and posted on my Facebook and Twitter sites and it received so many likes, Favs, shares and retweets within hours! You display a lot of enthusiasm along with your passion about The Mars Generation’s mission and what it means for humanity’s future and that’s what I love so much about you and that’s why you can always count on me! Take care Astro-buddy!
