December 2012, Curiosity Detector A few months after Mars showed landing, NASA announced its next Mars mission, which would run another planet in 2020 Detectors, which will focus on the possibility of living organisms in the past of Mars and assess the viability there.
Microsoft's HoloLens played a very important role in the new detector design. Two weeks ago, NASA demonstrated the conceptual design of the detector, although the agency had not yet decided on the landing point of the Mars mission in 2020 but had already listed three candidates.

At the same time, NASA is also committed to the seemingly not yet practical work of the Mars Manned Detector conceptual design. This is a tool for the purpose of propaganda science, and it shows that astronauts will be in the future of Mars exploration may be in the summer of Mars, Used some of the technology.
The detectors on the video show look a bit like the Hollywood blockbuster, and it's actually out of the hands of Hollywood - the detectors were designed by Shanon and Marc Parker, who produced a number of Hollywood films , One of the most famous is the "record: war" in the futuristic motorcycle.
Marc in an interview with the media to introduce them to build the probe into the energy: "This detector is almost nothing in our workshop to build." I mean, small to stents, labels, are not ordered to come. We built the cabin, the chassis, the suspension, the wheels, the frame, the interior, the seats, the glass - everything must start from scratch. & Rdquo;
But as Shanon added, for design purposes and making it look cooler, the appearance of the detector is not entirely practical.

The probe is 28 feet long, 14 feet wide and 11 feet high, made of aluminum and carbon fiber, and is equipped with a 700V battery and charged by the solar panel. Inside the detector, there are a total of four seats and a simulation laboratory for astronauts to experiment. In addition, the detectors can be separated from the middle.
NASA points out that while the concept probe will not land on Mars in the future, one or more of the elements above it will fit into the future design.
In addition, NASA also made a special note that this work did not use the taxpayer's money, it is commissioned by the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center to Marc a project.
It is reported that this detector this month in the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center on display next month will be moved to the east coast and where a number of exhibitions on display. NASA hopes to recreate the turmoil that came with Mars like the curiosity in 2012.
