Move over Curiosity, there's a new Mars rover in town. Meet Bridget, the European Space Agency's first rover to the red planet.

Bridget is being built in the UK and is set to land on Mars in 2018.

It has a big drill that can dig two metres below Mars' surface so it can search for any living things that might be lurking underground.

Newsround's Ayshah's interviewed spacecraft engineer Abbie Hutty, who's been working on a test model of Bridget.
