The name Vitus stems from the Latin word, "vita" which means life. I think the names suits the rover, as it is trying to discover any signs of past life. I also think the meaning relates to our lives. Life on our planet demands exploration and discovery. This rover will do just that, and in doing so will supply our lives with new knowledge of what was once unknown and out of reach to us. Discovery of this planet will change lives. Anything that is found will be integrated into our teachings and our classes. It will be shared all over the world. And so whether life is found, or we find something else considered groundbreaking, it will change life.
