Apologies if it's already mentioned here, The Mars Rover apparently uses N-undecane as a power source along with solar panels anyone knows more about this?

The Hopper looks really interesting, What's the Mission Architecture?
Hopping into the crator or crators of south pole. The crator(s) are so deep that part of it remains permenantly in shade of sunlight, making it possible to have water.

That's an interesting concept, It seems to have a base width of 1m and a height no less than 0.5m so plenty of space for fuel.
