The “Believe Rover” is rugged enough to handle the moon’s terrain. The small rover has four axels and eight, all-terrain wheels. The design keep its weight balanced over uneven terrain and craters. In case it tips over, the claw helps right it. The rover is capable of digging up and moving lunar soil to where it needs to be by using its sharp, metal, flexible claw. Samples are stored in the automated sample drawer on the front of the rover. It has a retractable “SoilSpy” on the back to dig up soil and check for water and elements. The Believe Rover has solar panels to power it for many years. The panels are positioned so they are not shaded by the claw or communication satellite. It can communicate back to Earth and the ISS. There is a camera that will livestream video to NASA and people watching on social media.
