Mars exploration draws significant attention as space agencies are able to deliver onto its surface more and more sophisticated scientific devices that aim to reveal the secrets of the red planet. Since February 2021, three rovers and one helicopter equipped with cutting-edge technology explore the surface of Mars but running currently on stiff aluminium-based tires. Can this sensitive equipment be transported in a smoother way? One step in the direction to offer elastic tires based on a VMQ/BR blend, which can withstand the challenging environmental conditions for Mars explorations is presented in this study.
