Meet the newest concept vehicle designed for navigating the demanding landscape of Mars: the Mars Rover Vehicle Navigator®, or MRVN®. Based on NASA science, the next generation of space explorers could be traveling and working in a high-tech mobile laboratory similar to this rover vehicle. MRVN is an impressive size with its mobile lab, and has massive wheels designed to travel over dunes, rocks and craters. MRVN can often be seen at its permanent home at the visitor complex when it is not on a mission.
Visitors can get up close to this extraordinary machine that was commissioned by Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. NASA approved the rover vehicle design, but no U.S. tax dollars were used to fund the building of this vehicle.
As of February 12, 2018, MRVN is out on a mission. You can expect to see MRVN return to the visitor complex in the summer of 2018.
