Through this link, a more fundamental understanding of the geology, stratigraphy, and internal structure of Vesta’s preserved ancient planetary surface will be achieved. The observations identified above require mobility, either for sampling of multiple surface and subsurface units on a heterogeneous asteroid such as Vesta, or for positioning geophysical instruments that must work in tandem. Horizontal mobility also could provide vertical mobility by sampling blocks excavated by impact craters.

The smaller vehicles in this class might not, in general, be capable of travel far from their landing sites. , Mars Pathfinder’s Sojourner) may require their lander to act as a telecommunications relay. Clearly, direct communication is the preferred option. 2) and Russia’s Marsokhod fall at, respectively, the lower and upper ends of this size category.
