It looks like we're making progress on creating our next set of Mars rovers. And this time it will be international! Hopefully. If it all works out. Spaceflight Now has an article about the next step in creating the next missions to Mars. I mentioned this in a previous post, but now we're starting to get more details. I would like to note that the reason given in the article as to why we can't fund another Atlas 5 is because funds are being used to fund the James Webb Space Telescope. I wonder what Phil Plait's reaction will be?
