Reminder: NASA’s Small Pressurized/Lunar Electric Rover Prototype Part of Today’s Obama Inaugural Parade January 20, 2009

Posted by Nick Azer in NASA, Obama.

A quick reminder that the prototype of NASA’s new small pressurized rover, that will be used by NASA astronauts on their next lunar missions, will be a part of the Barack Obama Inaugural Parade today.

The parade begins at approximately 2:30pm Eastern Standard Time, and should be webcast and televised virtually everywhere (even MLB.com is carrying the actual inauguration). So, tune in or plug in and get a wonderful sneak peek at the future of NASA’s moon colonization :)

Interestingly, I see the rover noted on both the parade’s site and in that above news article as a “Lunar Electric Rover”–a term I hadn’t come across before, even in earlier posts and research on it. A new name?
