New Space: Mars Drone + New Horizons Update

Scientists at NASA want to send a Mars drone now. The Mars Electric Reusable Flyer (MERF) would be capable of flying across the Martian surface, taking pictures and videos for us to observe back home. It can even recharge from a rover on the ground with it.
