Mars Rover fitted with new rims

VICTORIA CRATER, MARS – The Mars Exploration Rover received shiny new rims recently, as revealed by NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The extra “bling” is expected to enhance the Rover’s status on the harsh, uninhabitable planet.

Project costs were not available at press time, although a NASA spokesperson emphasized a continuing commitment to “off-the-shelf” parts to save money. The rim size, however, is reportedly custom.

UPDATE – Mars Rover stripped in bad section of crater

    Is that a picture of Spirit or Opportunity? I can’t tell.

    It’s the Rover Continental… check out the crown air freshener on the dashboard.(But it’s based on Spirit.)
