Mars Rover Update

Click here for an update on the extremes of weather the Mars Rovers face in their continuing exploration of planet 4. Above are the daily charts of highs and lows for each rover over the entire surface mission for each.

Temperatures often differ by more than 100 degrees Celsius. That’s a change of 180 degrees Fahrenheit — the equivalent of having the temperature drop from a high of 70 degrees F. at midday to minus 110 degrees F. the same night. That would be like going from a beach in Hawaii to the South Pole in mid-winter … every day!
