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 is currently out on a mission. Check back soon to see when it has returned to its permanent home at the visitor complex.

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.
