Intelligence is a rover that collects lunar regolith for rocket fuel and drinking water if there is H2O. Regolith is also collected to learn about soil composition and the universe's past. When Intelligence picks up regolith, it is quite a sight. A large scoop bends down in whatever direction needed, opens wide, and grabs regolith. A bin opens and the scoop drops its load. This lunar dust is sticky! If any regolith sneaks onto Intelligence, he shakes it right off. A pulsator moves the wheels and dust flies! The rover body is wide and the wheels are large for stability on the rough, rocky lunar surface. A low center of gravity helps too. Claws are useful for snagging large objects and smashing rocks. Since bigger is better with astronomy, more advances can be made with more knowledge. Regolith collection and study can help humans live on the Moon!
