Airbus is designing a Mars rover to return soil samples

  Airbus is designing a Mars rover to return soil samples Back in April, NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) agreed to figure out whether it's possible to bring Martian soil samples back to Earth. Now, the ESA has granted Airbus a $5.2 million contract to design a concept for a rover that can collect those samples on the red planet.

30 Catastrophic Design Fails . By Kenneth Uehara in Web Design . Updated on July 26, 2016. Designers do not get enough love from the people they work with. Sometimes they make it look so easy that you’d go, “Hey, I can do that too.”

The ultimate kitchen design fail as the fitter leaves it impossible to open the cupboard and drawer round the corner from the oven.

“In that situation it's really such an extreme loss of downforce, that it is not really safe,” he told autosport.com.

"Of course we could consider racing without using any DRS, but that is not a way to compete."

Despite the disappointment of the failed design, Lowe did not rule out a return of the controversial wing in the future for Williams.

"I don't think there is anything sort of fundamentally wrong with this rear wing,” he said.

"It is something in the way everything has been put together, it is a combination, that is causing some strange phenomenon.

"We don't have the answer right now, no. We want to do some more evaluations."

The horrific situation resulted in both Stroll and Sirotkin having to start in the pit lane and Lowe called it an experience he “hope[d] to not ever have to repeat”.

The Williams boss promised more updates on the situation in future events such as Germany and Hungary but refused to promise “any particular outcome”.
