If you are wandering around Greenland’s ice sheet and you run into this crazy thing, it is NASA’s GROVER (
government acronym for somethingGoddard Remotely Operated Vehicle for Exploration and Research). It is solar powered and it crawls around Greenland on its own and uses ground-penetrating radar to look at ice. And it’s cool.
NASA robot explores ice in Greenland. Video. Will explore for months at a time via remote. Possibly prototype to explore other planets.
