  1. First of all James, thank you very much for uploading this video! Always pleasure to see obscure material from Soviet space program. Love the retro synth music <3 I'm not sure that there are three working rovers on Mars – only Opportunity and Curiosity are working, Spirit was dead from 2010 and Sojourner was short duration mission. Correct me if I'm wrong? Putin announced Mars missions so maaaybe there is some chance for new Russian rover on Mars in the future. Don't expect that it will be on first mission but maybe later.

  2. Regrettably there are no plans for any descendants of the Marsokhod to go *anywhere*. But note, there are presently four rovers on Mars – three in a working state – and more are planned. The work performed in designing the Marsokhodii was not wasted.
