About the Marsokhod

The Marsokhod, a joint US and Russia effort, is a teleoperated robotic vehicle. In the early part of 1993, prototypes of the rover were brought to NASA Ames Research Center from Russia. Together they were able to interface the rover successfully to a virtual environment control system. The rover has since made several missions around the world at locations which exhibit "mars like" terrain. These include the Kamchatka Peninsula in Siberia in 1993, Mojave Desert in the United States in 1994, and most recently at Kilauea Volcano in the United States in 1995.
