Description of project

My name is Rennie. The TM-geo is a prototype of a machine scheduled to land on Mars. Its mission is to land in a mountain range and take photos of the area, so that we can designate landing spots for future missions. It accomplishes this by using a rocket, which can be repeatedly launched from the rover. The rover will reach a height of about 50 kilometers before using a parachute to drift down to the surface, taking pictures.
