(Ancient Life Investigator Of Extra Terrestrial Turf) Pronounced like Alien and Elliot put together. Because this rover is in search of ancient alien life and also because the rover is not from Mars it is also an alien to that planet.  I learned that the rover is searching for things on Mars or investigating where life was. A.L.I.E.T.T.  will bring rocks and other samples home to earth. I think it would be cool if A.L.I.E.T.T. was able to discover new and different species of animals and plants. It of course would be awesome to get humans to Mars, because once you are in space you are on a new adventure. I am excited to see what A.L.I.E.T.T. discovers.
