I sure hope this isn't the way they're going to be sending data back to Earth:

Looks like some kind of rover you know like the mars rover so they can see and map and collect samples of soils and what ever so if so ya AbelAbel it is a robot. However it looks like it was built out of spare parts. But if it was how would it have got back it is a robot can't think of snything else look at the tires. :lol:

It's supposed to be the Curiosity rover that's now on Mars. I think it's more likely a prototype of Curiosity and not the actual Mars rover. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it does look very much like the pictures I've seen of Curiosity. I doubt very much that they'd have the actual rover they intend to send to Mars standing next to a pile of rocks with people walking around in ordinary clothing.

I'm guessing the rocks were used to observe its operation when moving over uneven terrain.
