When I first saw it I thought of Curiosity on Mars. Not quite the same thing but close enough.
Yes, it does resemble the Mars rovers. Apparently humanity ignored the warning on the cover.
That's also the first thing that came to my mind: it looks like the Mars rovers. Well done by the drawer in 1962! Why should we stay off the Moon?
Indeed, outstanding art. Rob, I haven't read the story inside yet so I don't know.
