Mars car crashes into Yogi Bear rock.

Whoops! The NASA team had its first crash on Mars yesterday when their rover ran into a rock.

But the red-faced learner-drivers on Earth insist the multi-million pound toy was not damaged.

It was supposed to run up to the mound of volcanic material they've nicknamed Yogi Bear and stop.

Instead, the car hit the rock and pictures showed it hanging at a precarious angle.

Mission manager Richard Cook in California said: "No harm done. The rover just went faster than we thought."

Technicians backed the car off ready for another try today.
