New Bigger Mars Rover

Wired has a writeup on the new Mars Science Laboratory that is three times the size of Spirit or Opportunity.

[update 1/5/2008] To answer Darnell's questions, here is a list of the proposed landing sites.

"The current engineering constraints call for a landing site less than 45° from the Martian equator and less than 1km above the reference datum."

Now that's a rover! Did they say exactly where NASA plans to land the rover?

Note: With four rovers roaming the Martian surface (if you include Pheonix that is), it is surprising that we have not launched anything on the Moon.
