In pictures: Southern rovers

The outside of the rover is covered in solar panels.

"The various panels all see the Sun at different times of day," says engineer James Lever, "but even those facing away from the Sun pull in a very usable amount of power because of the reflectivity of the snow."

There is space in the box for a scientific payload.
