NASA Ames recently led the “Mojave Volatiles Prospector” (MVP) robotic field test to study the use of in-situ prospecting instruments in a real-time robotic surface mission.The field test was designed as a high-fidelity lunar analog mission where scientists (Code S) operated the Ames K-Rex rover (Code T) in the Mojave Desert as a lunar analog mission.

This work was recently highlighted on the Discovery Channel and features footage from both the Mojave Desert field site and the remote Science Operations Center (based at NASA Ames). The video segment can be viewed here: http://www.discovery.ca/Video?vid=505098
