[Images: A “faux Mars” being air-brushed and constructed in a lab in southern California “to simulate the environment” on the red planet. Contrast that with a photo taken by Spirit, the robotic Ansel Adams of Mars, showing “Larry’s Lookout, a pit stop along the robot’s uphill trail as it explores the red planet.”

Do you think maybe that’s where they shot this photo?
Is Spirit technically a robot (i.e. AI) or a rover (i.e. remote-controlled, to an extent)?
