Enabling the 2018 ESA-NASA Mars Rover

Aviation Week and Space Technology has an article on the on-going challenges of combining the ESA and NASA rovers into a single rover for the 2018 mission.  It doesn't sound as if there are fundamental problems, but rather the proverbial problem of trying to fit a lot of capability into a fixed (and smaller budget).

We may get more detail at the international Mars Exploration Analysis Group (MEPAG) meeting next week.
