What's the best way of getting science from celestial body? The answer is DRIVE!

What's the best way of delivering ore or supplies from distant location to your base? The answer is make your wheels rolling!

But did you try to drive for 110 km for two hours, avoiding obstacles and keeping your speed in sane limits? It's not fun anymore.

Don't worry! Automagic Industries brings you a new autopilot, which reduces driving accidents by 100%. Bon Voyage is here and it will drive your rovers in background!
