How big is the lander?
Student 5

The lander is actually larger than the rover. And you can see it on the edges in the images that you see. But the rover is about the height of a person, about my height. And the lander is bigger around than that.

If we want to just expand on that just a wee bit. The rover is like what we said here is about her height, but the other size of the rover when the solar arrays are extended is like Shiquel O'Neil. It is almost 7 foot 2 in that direction. It is huge.
