Selene is the Greek Titan of the moon, so I decided to name my rover, Selene. Selene will be made of titanium because it is the strongest metal. Along with the regular parts of a rover, Selene will have the following additional parts: > A Drill with holes that can open and close > A heating chamber > Two storage tanks > A moon duster The Drill which can rotate 360' and move up & down will break huge rocks into smaller pieces, which is collected in the holes on the drill, to be transferred to the heating chamber through a tube. The heating chamber will melt any ice mixed with rock pieces, so the ice(water) and rock pieces are separated and is collected in two different storage tanks. Nuclear powered Selene will carry more lunar regolith per trip. Moon duster will prevent lunar dust from damaging parts of Selene.
