Dude, Where's My Moon Rover?, Wired

"Two weeks a year, Barbara Romig drives around the Arizona desert testing out the latest space suit designs and NASA plans for doing geology on the moon. Back in the Apollo days, NASA blasted their own crater field in Arizona for the crews to practice driving around and being geologists. Now at that same site, Barbara, 28, is the test coordinator for the EVA program, Desert RATS (Research And Technology Studies). She was one of the speakers in todays "Risk and Exploration" Symposium."
