NASA is preparing to launch its space probe to Mars in March 2020 next year, after engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory installed the legs and wheels of the probe on June 13.

The wheels are made of aluminum with 48 perforations on the surface, so that the walker facilitates the surface of the red planet, which has a rocky surface and coarse sand.

The front wheels, unlike their main engines with other wheels, have existing steering engines to help them make a full 360-degree rotation, and the system has a tilt to 45 degrees in either direction, making it easier to roam the rocks without turning.

The team is set to install the probe’s arms in the next few days, as well as cameras mounted on its back and motors designed to collect samples from the Red Planet’s rocks and soil.

March 2020 will be launched to Mars in July next year, if tests are done so that other equipped wheels will be installed but are being tested.
