Sojourner

NOTICE: This is a follow up to the post "Mars Pathfinder".

Sojourner Part 1

Sojourner was the rover sent to mars for the Pathfinder mission, Sojourner was a 6 wheeled rover with a duel powered battery, one was a solar panel that covered the top and the other was a long lasting battery (40 amp lithium ion battery). Sojourner measured 11 inches tall, 24 inches long and 19 inches wide it was ideal for the landing site. The landing site they chose, called Ares Vallis was, at one point was a flood plain (helped NASA prove there was water on Mars) and they thought that it would have a lot of different rocks for Sojourner to examine.
