Thanks, Elizabeth. I think one thing the development of this robot shows is that space robots are becoming more specialized, as we also saw in this slideshow on some NASA is developing with the Canadian Space Agency: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=254560

I've read about this rover before, it's quite interesting. NASA's Mars exploration is some of its most fascinating work. I'll be curious to see what they can learn about the planet by mining it.
