    Rover Travel Distances

    http://www.space.com/79-distances-dr...er-worlds.html

    "Based on wheel rotations Lunokhod 2 was thought to have covered 37 km but Russian scientists have revised that to an estimated distance of about 42 km based on orbital images of the lunar surface.
    ...
    As of June 6, 2013, its journey remained the longest any robotic rover, or any vehicle, that had ever driven on another celestial body; the crewed Apollo 17 Lunar Roving Vehicle travelled 35.75 km, and the still extant robotic Opportunity Rover had travelled 36.61 km on Mars."

    Happy New Year’s Day 2014 from Mars – Curiosity Celebrates 500 Sols Spying Towering Mount Sharp Destination

    Today, New Year’s Day 2014, NASA’s Curiosity mega rover celebrates a huge mission milestone – her 500th Martian Day on the Red Planet since the death defying touchdown of August 2012.

    “500 Sols of Mars: While Earth celebrates #NewYear2014, midnight on Mars mark my 500th day of operations,” she tweeted today.

    And she marked the grand occasion by snapping a fabulous new panorama spying towering Mount Sharp – looming dead ahead in her high resolution color cameras.
