Roland Piquepaille writes, "Last week, I wrote about the on-board software used to control robots involved in future space missions, such as the ExoMars rover, which should be launched around 2011. But, as reported by BBC News, this robot is already trained on Earth, on the slopes of the volcano El Teide in the island of Tenerife to be precise. And the Telegraph adds that the robot has been nicknamed Bridget and has taken its first steps on its road to Mars." For more on the ESA's ExoMars rover, see the ESA ExoMars page and Roland's blog entry.
