Lunar RoverThis is WAY off topic but it's also very cool so I am going to post it anyway.  Take a look below (or Read More...) to see an embedded video of NASA's new lunar rover that will be serving as the finale of Obama's inaugural parade next Tuesday. 

If you haven't heard about this thing yet you have to take a look.  Notice that the spacesuits are built in to the back of the vehicle.  The astronauts will slide in and be ready to go in less than ten minutes compared to six hours that it takes now on the space station to get ready to go outside.

To see the complete story visit the Wired Magazine article that speaks about it in detail.

If the video below does not display properly try going to the video on the Houston Chronicle's web site.
