My lunabot will have to scoop up lunar regolith and melt ice caps in the ground, separating the water into hydrogen and oxygen and mine metals and gems. It will have a shovel tucked underneath and it will come out and scoop the dirt into a container inside the robot. After the dirt is shoveled into the first container it will be filtered and any big pieces will drop into a different container labeled “gems”. Another tool that cracks ice will heat it and it will suck up the water and bring it to living quarters for drinking water. My robot will have very strong solar panels and strong sensors so they will work even if they are covered with dust. My lunabot will have heavy duty tires so it won't get stuck.
