Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, space travel

An international team of explorers, led by Japan, will send a tiny robotic rover to the Martian moon of Phobos very soon.

A Japanese-led mission to Mars has just signed an agreement with German and French partners to build a rover to explore Phobos.

The rover will be transported on Japan’s planned Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) mission and operate on Phobos’ hostile, low-gravity surface.
