        NASA | Dust-Proofing a Mars Rover

        Mars is a dusty planet, and this dust can cause a lot of problems for planetary rovers and their solar panels. In this NASA EDGE video, see how materials embedded with electrodes can clear away dust from their surfaces, and how these materials are currently being tested. Also learn about the further applications these materials could have, such as dust-free spacesuits.
