Modified Transcript: For this project, we will need to cover many types of terrain. Antarctica and Greenland present snow, ice, slush, and any combinations of that. Since we are also testing the rover in Kansas, where there isn't much snow and ice, we have to be able to deal with grass and rocks and mud. This means that we need to cover just about every type of terrain there is.
