Tim Peake controls remote control Mars rover from ISS
UK astronaut Tim Peake has performed a challenging remote control experiment from the International Space Station.
He had to command a robot rover on Earth, driving it across a big sandpit in Stevenage, near London, that simulated the surface of Mars.
The Briton experienced some software glitches, but achieved his objectives.
