CNET's NASA narrows down Mars 2020 rover names: Hello, Fido? includes the image below.
I'm not sure if the rover is moving and a rolling shutter was in use, or if the lines on the wheels are really wavy somehow, so I thought I'd ask:
- What are the lines on the wheels of the Insight rover called?
- Are they actually "wavy" as shown in the image?
- Are they different than those on the Curiosity rover?
