My robot is named Selene, after the Greek Goddess of the Moon. My robot will be made out of metal and will have treads so it can move on the Moon’s rough surface. For power/energy, it will use solar panels, which will absorb energy from the Sun when it is near the South Pole of the Moon. When it reaches the North, it will rely on a rechargeable battery powered by the solar panels. Selene will have a retractable shovel to pick up a bunch of rocks at once and a retractable claw to pick up big rocks. Inside, there will be a metal sifter so it can separate big rocks from small ones. Because there is also a dust problem, the treads will have a flap(so the dust will not damage the gear) and the solar panels will have an extra layer of glass and a cleaner.
