Submission + - Next Mars mission selected for funding (

Dr Bip writes: Flush with the good news coming from Mars, NASA has announced that JPL has won funding for the next mission to Mars. It seems that the lander will be carrying a self-driving mole developed by the german space agency (DLR). Commiserations to the two other projects that were also in the selection finale (TiME and CHopper).

Note the DLR mole's last attempt to get to Mars was with the Bealge 2 lander, fingers crossed for this second attempt.
