China's Jade Rabbit (Yutu) lunar rover has broken down on the moon, and Sir Patrick Stewart has employed his thespian talents to pay tribute to the plucky robot explorer. On last night's Daily Show, Stewart dressed up as Jade Rabbit and bade a (goofy) bittersweet farewell to humanity.
I excavated this photo of an interesting US moon rover concept from a 1962 Hungarian science journal. I have not seen this prototype before, and sadly there is only a little info about it.
This contraption looks like it'd fall apart trundling over a particularly rough bit of carpeting, but it's actually much more durable than it seems. It's Lunokhod 1 and the Soviets drove it around the moon in 1970.
