Mark Watney's Rover

Jordan: The MartianMark Watney's Rover

Experience

On Mars, Mark Watney covered roughly 3,200 kilometres in his trusty Rover before he finally reached the Schiaparelli crater from where he was able to leave the planet. The tank-like vehicle kept him safe and warm and carried him through some serious storms.

So it seems fitting that the Rover has come back down to Earth. It is now on display at the Royal Automobile Museum in Amman, Jordan. The museum was established in 2003, and houses a rare collection of motorbikes and cars going back to the time of the Great Arab Revolt. The Rover is displayed in the museum's outdoor area.
